The second phase of loosening anti-COVID-19 measures has entered into force today
After more than 50 days of the blockade due to the coronavirus epidemic, most of the Montenegrin economy is opening today.
Boutiques, crafts, gyms, dental clinics are just some of the businesses that have opened their doors to anyone interested. Boutiques, industrial goods stores, construction materials, and services are also open today.
Starting today, citizens can go to hairdressers, beauticians, and open their doors to gyms and fitness centers. Dental surgeries, car schools, bookstores, museums, and galleries also work again.
Everyone who is indoors is required to wear protective masks, and gym and fitness center staff are also required to do so. However, service users are not required to wear masks during exercise.
The prescribed distance between people in all enclosures must be at least two meters, and only ten people can reside in 10 square meters.
As of today, taxi services are allowed to operate within the cities with the permission to transport a maximum of two people in the back seat. Public transport will also start in non-infected municipalities, and citizens will also be able to move into their homes and cottages in other towns, as well as farm properties.
A COVID-19 test certificate is required to enter Croatia
All persons wishing to enter Croatia will now have to have a certificate that they have been tested for coronavirus, said the Director of the Infectious Diseases Clinic "Dr. Fran Mihaljevic" Alemka Markotic. She added that the test should not be older than 24 hours.
"Those who want to enter Croatia will have to do a PSR test in their country, which should not be older than 24 hours. Only with this confirmation will they be able to enter the country. It's insurance. The test is highly reliable, but it is not 100 percent certain, so we have to be careful," Markotic told HRT.
