COVID passes abolished

The government’s Crisis Response Team has decided to revoke COVID passes as of this weekend.

A Crisis Response Team member, Minister Darija Kisic Tepavcevic, has said that the COVID passes would no longer be required as of Saturday.

COVID passes were introduced on October 23, 2021 and were required for anybody entering a catering facility after 8 pm. Doctors on the crisis response team wanted the COVID passes imposed 24/7 but that was not accepted by the rest of the team.

The minister said the COVID passes were introduced to combat the delta variant of the coronavirus which, she said, is no longer present in Serbia.

She also said that the recommendation for wearing face masks indoors remains in force with masks mandatory in health care facilities, but that the limits on the number of people at indoor events are also revoked. Kisic Tepavcevic said that seven-day isolation requirements are still in place for the people infected with COVID.

Also, international travel measures remain in place – that is proof of vaccination, PCR tests or proof of recovery from COVID are required for entering Serbia.

The Crisis Response Team also recommended a fourth booster shot for people over the age of 18 five months after the first booster dose and booster doses for children aged 12-18. It also revoked quarantine requirements for people in contact with infected patients.
