At the suggestion of the COVID-19 Crisis Response Team, the Serbian government is introducing new measures regarding the prevention of coronavirus spread, which will be valid starting from 17 July.
These measures prohibit gatherings of more than ten people in public places indoors and outdoors at the same time. During the stay in public places, there must be a distance of at least 1.5 metres between those gathered, i.e. only one person can be present on every four square meters.
Wearing a protective mask is mandatory in all public places indoors, which means that parents of minor children, as well as of children with special needs, and their guardians are obliged to ensure that their children wear a protective mask.
The government has recommended that masks be worn in all public places in the open. In places where it is not possible to provide a distance of at least 1.5 meters (queues in front of shops, pharmacies, bus and train stops), wearing masks is mandatory.
The government decided at the session to open the Secondary School of Economics “Stana Milanovic” in Sabac as a temporary facility for accommodation and treatment of persons suffering from infectious disease COVID-19.
Medical devices, medicines, medical supplies and other necessary medical equipment and protective equipment for the temporary hospital are provided by the Republic Health Insurance Fund.
