While the coronavirus has not yet fully disappeared, European governments are already releasing most of the restrictions previously put in place to stop the disease from spreading rapidly and minimize the pandemic impact. Life in the Czech Republic has mostly returned to normal, however, there are still some changes that have to be made for the situation to be the same as it was before the pandemic.
As life is slowly returning to normal after the global lockdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, many European countries have already started relaxing the restrictions imposed on traveling, and together with this, they are also gradually reopening their borders. Since the Central European countries have been doing especially well during the pandemic, they are among the first countries to do so.
So where can you travel from the Czech Republic and what countries can let their citizens travel to Czechia?
While the Czech government keeps relaxing the previously introduced restrictions and countermeasures that were put in place to stop the coronavirus from spreading, it is important to remember that the disease might return and it might return soon. After all, it’s still not even gone in the first place. So what can you expect to happen in the foreseeable future?
In the last couple of weeks, we have released articles about changes regarding the coronavirus pandemic. As changes are constantly being made to the gradual lifting of the previously introduced restrictions, it is difficult to stay up to date with the most recent news, which is why we made this summary in which you’ll find all the important information plus some other news.
In the last couple of weeks, the Czech government has been easing the restrictions and countermeasures previously introduced to fight the coronavirus. Due to the positive development of the pandemic situation, some of them were lifted a lot sooner than it was originally planned. Among these, for example, is the permission for foreigners to stay in the country until July 17 even if their visa or residence permit expires.
As the pandemic situation in the Czech Republic is developing well with fewer people tested positive for COVID-19 every day, the Czech government continues to speed up easing some restrictions and has introduced new changes such as one affecting arrivals of family members of EU citizens in the Czech Republic.
Due to the positive development of the situation in the Czech Republic, the Czech government announced some changes regarding the restrictions that have been introduced during the previous weeks to stop the novel coronavirus from spreading rapidly. These changes were announced at a press conference on Thursday, April 23 and include for example gathering outside in groups of 10 people or traveling abroad.
On one hand, we can’t simply ignore the present alarming situation and keep going like nothing is happening. On the other hand, we for sure shouldn’t fall into the other extreme and succumb to stress and anxiety. Inevitably, the recent events trigger anxiety in all of us, no matter how emotionally and psychically stable we (think we) are. We are outside of our comfort zones, mentally strained, unsure and wary of things to come. Therefore, it is of highest importance for us to brace ourselves with patience, discipline and kindness.
