Information relating to the emergency situation

The emergency situation was established on March 12 with the aim to limit the spread of the coronavirus, and it will last until May 17.

2-by-2 rule applies for all public spaces during the emergency situation: up to two people may be together and keep at least two metres of distance from other people.

As of May 11, sales and service premises and catering establishments may be open in shopping centres provided disinfectants are available and the 2-by-2 rule is complied with. The rules also apply to the general premises of shopping centres and to all other service providers and catering establishments outside the shopping centres.

Until now, only companies offering certain goods and services, such as food stores and pharmacies, could be open in the shopping centres, but from next week onwards, provided that hygiene rules are observed, all other stores and service providers, such as pet shops, footwear and watch repairs, hairdresser and beauty salons, may be open.

As of May 11, food can be eaten at the premises of catering establishments where so far it was only possible to buy food as take-out. The 2-by-2 rule must be observed in catering establishments, the dining tables must be placed in such a way that the distance between the tables is 2 metres and a maximum of two people (except families) can sit at a table. It is recommended that catering establishments only provide table service to reduce contacts between other customers and serving staff.

At the same time, the restriction remains which allows consumption of food at the catering establishment until 22:00, to prevent people from gathering in restaurants, cafes, and bars in evenings.
