This means the yellow light is currently “switched on”, corresponding to medium risk of disease spread.
The new reduced restrictions mean that:
- vaccinated people and people who have had and overcome Covid-19 can gather without restrictions;
- the groups above plus people with negative Covid-19 tests will be able to gather in crowds up to 500 people indoors and up to 1,000 outside;
- those who don't fall into any of the categories will be able to gather up to 20 people indoors and up to 50 outdoors.
At the same time, the Ministry of Health said that if Covid-19 spread grows and the situation returns to high-risk levels if morbidity exceeds 120, the current precautions and safety measures are restored.
The rules of the 'yellow light' will take effect on the day after the information is published on the website of the Disease Prevention and Control Center (SPKC).
Apart from softening gathering rules, the 'yellow light' still foresees that shops and places where there is a high risk of disease transmission (places involving physical activity, singing, and similar) must provide 15 square meters per person, whereas libraries, churches, museums and other venues where contact among people is brief, must provide 10 square meters per person. Masks still have to be used indoors.
