The epidemiologic situation in the Czech Republic has been steadily improving. There are no great increases in the numbers of new infections or hospitalizations. Therefore, the government has come up with a number of new restriction relaxations, which will be valid from 1 August. These relaxations are mainly related to culture and sports. Several vaccination spots without the need to register have opened all over Czechia.
From 1 August, up to 3,000 people can attend an indoor cultural event.
What’s allowed from 1 August
- there can be up to 7,000 people outside and 3,000 inside at a cultural event – all of them have to have been tested, vaccinated or gone through COVID-19 in the last 180 days
- standing audiences are obligated to maintain a distance of 2 metres (this has gone down from 4 metres)
- you can now dance in clubs and other establishments if you prove your non-infectious status. Your test cannot be older than 24 hours
- there’s no limits on the capacity in pools (there used to be a limit of 75%) – but only those who have been vaccinated, sick with COVID-19 in the last 180 days or tested can go
- no need to prove your non-infectious status in ZOOs and in other places with guided tours of up to 20 people
- indoor exhibitions and galleries can choose whether they want to fill their capacity based on square meters or up to 75%
- there’s now no limits on the number of athletes preparing for a game/match
Vaccination without registration
Would you like to get vaccinated in Czechia but don’t want to deal with the complicated registration system? You’re in luck, because there are now several spots in Czechia where you can get the jab without the need to register online.
Aside from not having to come to the spot at a particular time, another advantage of getting your COVID-19 vaccine there is that you might win some exciting prizes (including Converse sneakers, Steam vouchers, and two iPhone 12s once a week).
