Measures tightened: 2-meter mandatory distance between people, new obligation for owners of premises
The government of the Republic of Serbia is once again pleading in the strongest terms to all citizens, and especially the elderly, to behave responsibly towards themselves and others
At today's session, the government of the Republic of Serbia adopted new measures aimed at combating the spread of the COVID-19 disease. The government's decision identified several facilities in the territory of the Republic of Serbia which will serve as quarantines if necessary.
Measures to limit outdoor and indoor public gathering have been tightened. Gatherings are limited in both cases so that the distance between two people must be at least two meters, and there may not be more than one person in an area of four square meters. Owners are under obligation to indicate in front of their premises the total number of people who are allowed to be there at the same time. Exempted from the application of this decision are persons who, because of their work obligation and a specific way of organizing work, cannot objectively apply this measure.
As a precaution, the measure related to the ban on export of medicines has been tightened and now the export ban applies not only to medicines manufactured in the Republic of Serbia, but to all medicines that are in the territory of our country. For the same reason in addition to sunflower cooking oil, export of sunflower seeds and semi-processed oil has been banned starting today.
The government of the Republic of Serbia is once again pleading in the strongest terms to all citizens, and especially the elderly, to behave responsibly towards themselves and others. If you are over 65 years old, stay at home and strictly follow the well-known measures for protection against COVID-19.
All measures adopted are aimed solely at preserving your life and health, but the government cannot win this fight on its own, and instead needs cooperation with all citizens and their greatest possible level of discipline.
Only together, united and in solidarity, can we emerge from this battle as victors, and we are convinced that it will be so, the government said.
Today's session began with a minute of silence for the victims of the March 17, 2004 pogrom in Kosovo and Metohija. In view of the state of emergency in force in the Republic of Serbia, this was the way to mark the 16th anniversary of the first pogrom in Europe in the 21st century, when more than 35 Serb churches and monasteries were burned down as well as more than 1,000 houses, more than 4,000 Serbs were expelled from their homes, while 28 people lost their lives.
