The Government approves new anti-COVID-19 measures

On 5 November 2021, based on the current epidemiological situation, the Czech government approved new extraordinary measures to combat COVD-19.

From 15 of November, the antigen test has a validity of one day and the PCR test has a time life of three days.
From 22 November, for indoor mass events, the antigen test for COVID-19 will be recognized as valid for the first 1000 people. Other visitors will alternatively be able to show proof of vaccination, a negative PCR test result, or recovery from COVID-19.
The decisions made for indoor events will be also applied to outdoor mass events.
According to an agreement with the cultural societies and the association of ski resorts, beginning on 1 December 2021, resort operators will use the system planned for indoor and outdoor events even for ticket selling of chairlifts and cable cars.
Health Minister Adam Vojtěch adds that the changes will not affect the mandatory tests planned for unvaccinated workers of these facilities, which must be carried out once a week. These tests will still be paid for by health insurance companies.

As of 27 October, the Czech Republic has divided the countries of the rest of the world into a system of different colors, with different rules for entering the country corresponding to each of them.

If you are arriving in the Czech Republic from countries with a low risk of infection, identified by the green color, before traveling you must complete an arrival form available at: https://plf.uzis.cz/. You will need to send confirmation of its completion upon request to the border control. Prior to entering Czech territory or no later than 5 days after entering the Czech Republic, you must undergo and present a negative test result for SARS-CoV-2.

When returning from countries with a medium risk of infection, represented by the yellow color, passengers from these locations must complete an arrival form available at: https://plf.uzis.cz/ and present confirmation of its completion upon request at the border control. Before entering the territory or no later than 5 days after entering the territory of the Czech Republic, it will be necessary to undergo a test to determine the presence of SARS-CoV-2.

When returning from countries at high risk of infection, identified by the light red color, passengers must fill in the arrival form on https://plf.uzis.cz/ and present confirmation of its completion upon request at the border control. Before entering the Czech Republic by public transport (mainly by plane, train, and bus) passengers must show written confirmation of a negative PCR test result carried out no later than 72 hours before entering the country. After entering the territory of the Czech Republic, everyone is obliged to undergo a PCR test to determine the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus between the 5th and 7th day. Until the PCR test is negative, in any place outside the home, it is mandatory to wear a respirator or similar respiratory protection that meets all conditions and technical requirements (for the product), including a filtration efficiency of at least 94% according to relevant standards (e.g. FFP2, KN95).

Moreover, for countries highlighted in dark red color, which have been identified as having a very high risk of infection, passengers entering the Czech Republic must fill in an arrival form available at: https://plf.uzis.cz/ and present confirmation of its completion upon request at border control. Before entering the country by public transport (in particular by plane, train and bus), passengers must show a negative result of a PCR test carried out no later than 72 hours before arrival.
