Children under 11 years of age (including) who are together with a person holding a Covid-19 certificate will also be able to receive indoor catering services.
Indoor catering services will be available to persons who are vaccinated against Covid-19, have overcome Covid-19 in the past six months or have a certificate attesting that a person has carried out a Covid-19 test in the last 48 hours for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 virus RNA, which is negative, or a negative SARS-CoV-2 virus antigen test carried out within the past six hours, as well as children aged 11 and under without any certificates.
Indoor catering services will be subject to strict epidemiological safety requirements:
- employees and visitors shall use mouth and nose covers, with the exception of the time when visitors sit at the table;
- no more than four adult persons and no more than 10 persons in total, and not more than two households, shall be present at the same table;
- a distance of at least two meters between persons sitting at different tables shall be provided;
- tableware and napkins shall be issued individually to each visitor;
- the tables shall be disinfected after each meal (each visitor).
Providers of catering services should ensure regular mechanical ventilation of rooms or continuous inflow of fresh air through windows.
In addition, clearly legible publicly available information, including in foreign languages, on the maximum number of persons who may be present at the same time, as well as the contact details of the person responsible and the direct telephone number of police assistance 110, shall be provided to visitors.
The government-backed proposal by the Ministry of Economics also stipulates that the working hours limit is maintained to reduce people's gatherings. On-site catering shall begin not earlier than 6 in the morning and end at midnight. Caterers can only issue food for takeaway after midnight.
Outdoor catering services are permitted to be provided to any person as from May 7.
