Organizers who have registered a gathering in accordance with the Public Gathering Act are not required to submit this notice. Also, all organizers of gatherings with more than a hundred participants are required to keep written records of participants, so that in case it is established that one of the participants was infected with SARS-CoV-2 virus, it could more effectively prevent the spread of the disease. Control over the implementation, as well as compliance with the recommendations and instructions of the Croatian Institute of Public Health, will be carried out by teams composed of civil protection inspectors and police officers.

We remind you that the best defense against this virus is to maintain personal hygiene, sanitize and keep social distance. 

Businesses allowed to operate have to comply with the measures given by the Croatian Institute for Public Health, which you can find in the latest news section.
