As of 22 November, the Czech government has implemented additional restrictions in reaction to the growing numbers of new COVID-19 cases.

These include the return of respirators in the workplace from 25 October, and the shortening of validity for both antigen and PCR tests, stricter checks of the O-N-T system in restaurants, and the end of free testing for non-vaccinated individuals from 1 November.

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.
