The government’s Crisis Unit proposed yesterday new measures to suppress the epidemic, which are valid from today, March 22.
As of this morning, due to the danger of the spread of the infectious disease Covid-19, food establishments will still remain closed: cafes, restaurants, nightclubs and bars, as well as shopping malls. Instead, all food sales establishments and cultural institutions (cinemas, theatres, galleries and libraries) will be allowed to work until 9:00 p.m., all other establishments until 8:00 p.m., under the following conditions:
All open facilities must ensure compliance with the minimum size of 9 square metres per person or visitor. Exceptions are fitness clubs, spas, gyms and the like where 16 square feet per person must be provided. This means that if a store or, for example, a hairdressing salon has 90 square metres, a maximum of 10 people can stay inside the facility at the same time. The number of people in the facility includes employees (hairdresser, salesperson, fitness instructor).
The Government of Serbia notes that, from this morning, inspectors will be more vigil and check the compliance with these measures.
Food and beverage facilities are allowed to sell food and beverages over the counter, as well as deliver food 24 hours a day. Hotel restaurants and cafeterias can only serve hotel guests who have registered by 9:00 pm.
The Serbian government once again calls for compliance with all epidemiological measures and appeals to the personal responsibility of all citizens. All measures are introduced to protect the health of the population and minimize social contacts, but all individuals in society have to contribute to the fight against COVID-19 in order to beat the disease.
Vaccination will continue unhindered according to the previously devised plan.
