Take note – story published 3 years ago

As of June 15, people with a negative Covid-19 test will also be able to attend public events, the government decided June 10.

Before it had been decided that only people who have been vaccinated against or had Covid-19 would be able to attend public events. The government decided to allow people who are able to show a negative test result will also be allowed to attend events. 

As of June 15 public events such as concerts, cinema, theater shows will be attended by people who:

  • are vaccinated against Covid-19;
  • have had Covid-19 during the last half-year;
  • have carried out a Covid-19 test in the last 48 hours and it is negative;
  • have carried out the Covid-19 rapid antigen test over the past 6 hours and it is negative.

All those situations will have to be proven by the digital Covid-19 certificate on entry. Children under 12 years of age will also be able to attend events with their parents and will not have to undergo a test.

State will pay for the Covid-19 tests until August 1, 2021. For children under 18 years of age, the Covid-19 test will be paid from the State budget until September 1, 2021.

  • provide personalized seats (no more than two persons from different households may be present in adjacent seats and no more than four persons from one household);
