Employees will be allowed to eat in company canteens provided they keep a safe distance from each other

Babiš’s government approved amendments to several anti-epidemic measures at an extraordinary meeting on 2 March 2021.

From 3 March 2021, employees will once again be able to use company canteens for direct consumption of food. However, only one diner may be seated at one table, and if it is a long table, there must be at least a two-metre gap between the diners or a mechanical obstacle preventing the spread of droplets.

From 3 March 2021, there is an adjustment to the length of the ordered quarantine for persons living in the same household with a person infected with SARS CoV-2 coronavirus where conditions for the isolation of the infected person from other household members cannot be met. In this case, the length of the quarantine is reduced from 21 days to 14 days.

The crisis measure restricting the free movement of persons is also further specified. An exception of the attendance of meetings is added to the daytime curfew, and it is specified that persons attending such meetings must wear a respirator or a surgical face mask or a similarly effective certified respiratory protective device.
