Hi, my name is Anna, I am 22 years old, and I am currently living in Brno. I was born and raised in Luxembourg, with a double nationality, Luxembourgish and Czech.
I lived in Luxembourg until my graduation in 2018, however, I visited my relatives and friends in the Czech Republic during my whole life. Living in a bi-lingual household, the language never was an issue whenever I came here.
Although the number of new COVID-19 cases in Czechia has been steadily decreasing, the situation in hospitals is still critical. Therefore, the Minister of Health, Jan Blatný, decided to extend current coronavirus restrictions to at least the end of the Easter holidays – including the ban of movement between districts. Still, there will be a slight relaxation of some of the current rules from 22 March.
From the beginning of the year 2021, The United Kingdom officially doesn’t belong to the European Union (EU) anymore. New obligations and restrictions might be still unclear, not mentioning the addition of the current coronavirus situation. Therefore, we are bringing, from our point of view, the most useful information for UK nationals living in and moving to the Czech Republic.
Newly-set countermeasures regarding restrictions of movement and freedom might be rather confusing. Does the whole city count as one district? In which parts of the city can I move freely? Can I visit my relatives in the same district? We have decided to bring you a list of questions we predict will arise in the next couple of days.
Due to a rapid number increase of confirmed cases of coronavirus and shortage of capacity in hospitals in the Czech Republic, the local government was compelled to announce another state of emergency and tighten the rules in the country. Stricter measures that are effective from March 1 ban traveling between districts and order the wearing of proper respiratory protection.
In response to the South African mutation of COVID-19 being detected in the Czech Republic earlier this week the Czech government is planning to introduce several countermeasures or a stricter curfew. These new restrictions mostly concern freedom of movement. While it is not yet clear whether the Chamber of Deputies approves them in the first place, they should supposedly come into effect on Monday, March 1.
The Czech government introduced some new changes regarding the planned respiratory protection. Originally, the new measure ordering people to wear either two face masks or one respirator was supposed to come into effect at midnight between February 22 and February 23. However, after the government’s Monday meeting it will come into place on Thursday, February 25.
The Czech government decided to further tighten the mandatory wearing of face masks due to the highly contagious British mutation of COVID-19. This means that in some places, people will be obliged to wear either one respirator or two face masks. The new measure comes into effect on Monday, February 22.
