Some EU countries to put Croatia on the red list due to the rise of new Covid-19 cases. However, the situation is not so dramatic.
Austria, Great Britain and Slovenia have moved Croatia from green to the red list due to the increase in the number of newly recorded Covid-19 cases. Germany otherwise hasn’t put the whole country on the red list, but only two counties in Dalmatia. Yet the situation is not so dramatic, especially not for boaters who are naturally isolated while on-board. The number of newly infected is slightly increasing, which is 265 cases in the last 24 hours, while yesterday it was 255.
It is important to point out that the number of tests has increased due to cheaper testing services. There are currently 1,841 active cases in Croatia, among them 135 patients on hospital treatment, of which 12 patients are on respirators.
Unlike other countries, Germany puts 2 of the 7 coastal counties on the red list. These are also the two counties where the largest number of charter vessels is located, in Central and Southern Dalmatia, in Šibensko-kninska County and Splitsko-Dalmatinska County.
146,168 people have been tested in Croatia so far, of which 1,647 in the last 24 hours, and Covid-19 has so far been identified in a total of 7,594 cases, of which 5,584 have recovered and 169 people have died.
All bars, restaurants, nightclubs and similar facilities have a work limit until midnight, while the authorities are considering the introduction of additional measures. Most tourist centers have organized testing centers for tourists, and the price of testing is from between 500 and 1500 HRK (66 – 200 EUR).
According to the decision of the British government, the citizens of the United Kingdom have until Saturday, August 22 at 4 am to return to their country from Croatia, in order to avoid a two-week quarantine. The same situation is with the Slovenians, whose government mentioned to the owners of real estate and vessels that they have 48 hours to prepare their property and other actions such as taking the vessel out of the sea. Otherwise, they will have to stay in quarantine for two weeks.
Hungary has announced that the mandatory quarantine rule for those who returns from Croatia will apply from September 1st, unless two tests show negative results.
