The changes to the regulation take effect immediately.
The amendments to the rules adopted last week provided for a gradual increase in passenger fill, in line with the plan developed by the Ministry of Health (the so-called traffic light principle).
Accordingly, if the 14-day cumulative Covid-19 incidence rate per 100 000 inhabitants does not exceed 100 new cases, the capacity was expected to be increased to 80%. Tuesday, the cumulative incidence dipped below 100 for the first time since October.
The condition that the number of passengers in public transport must not exceed 65% was valid from June 16, while the requirement of 50% was valid from December 7 to June 15 last year.
