The Serbian government adopted new measures to suppress the epidemic caused by the COVID-19 infectious disease, whose implementation will begin on 24 November 2020.
The new anti-epidemic measures are:
– Reducing working hours until 6 pm in restaurants, cafes, bars, clubs, betting shops and shopping malls.
– Mandatory and unconditional use of personal protective equipment (wearing a protective mask) indoors, as well as outdoors in those situations where interpersonal contact cannot be avoided.
– Prohibition of all public gatherings with the presence of more than 5 (five) persons indoors and outdoors. Excluded from this measure are work organisations, schools, shops, shopping malls and similar facilities, which are subject to the prescribed limit on the number of persons present at all times in relation to the square footage of the facility (minimum 4 m2 per person).
– Enabling work from home to all employees wherever possible.
– Strict control of the obligation to wear a protective mask on public transport, with a limit of the maximum number of passengers in a vehicle to half of the declared capacity of the vehicle.
– Strict control of the implementation of home isolation, house quarantine (self-isolation), as well as all other anti-epidemic measures in force.
These measures are limited to a period of 10 days and will be reconsidered in accordance with the subsequent epidemiological situation.
The government also uses this opportunity to once again strongly appeal to all citizens to behave responsibly towards themselves and their fellow citizens.
All the measures adopted are aimed exclusively at preserving the life and health of citizens.
