At the meeting on Tuesday of the Crisis HQ set up to protect the health of the population from the infectious disease COVID-19, the current epidemiological situation has been analyzed and the measures have been adjusted to it.

Starting on Friday, May 22, a negative test will not be required to enter the Republic of Serbia, nor a special permit, and that applies both to Serbian and foreign citizens - this is a recommendation the HQ has made to the Government of the Republic of Serbia today. All persons entering the territory of the Republic of Serbia will be handed health warnings stating that they are entering a territory where the virus is still circulating, and describing ways to prevent infection.

This recommendation is expected to be confirmed on Thursday by the government.

The Crisis HQ also made a recommendation to open an administrative crossing with Kosovo and Metohija.

PCR testing for coronavirus, performed at the personal request of citizens of Serbia and foreign citizens, will cost 6,000 dinars (about 50 euros) in the entire territory of the Republic of Serbia.

Bearing in mind the current epidemiological situation, it has been decided that certain health institutions that were designated as COVID hospitals will gradually return to the normal work process. In such institutions, all medical workers will be tested for coronavirus and will only be able to return to work after a negative result. The Clinical Center in Nis (the new building) will restart regular work on Friday, while the Institute for Orthopedic and Clinical Diseases Banjica in Belgrade will return to regular duties on Monday, May 25.

No sanctions for not wearing masks outdoors, but the epidemic is not over

Given the amount of speculation that has been repeated in the previous days, the Crisis HQ stressed that sanctioning those who are not wearing face masks in open spaces has never been recommended, and that such a measure is certainly not planned.

All members of the Crisis HQ, led by doctors, have made an appeal to all citizens to behave responsibly towards themselves and others because the epidemic is not over yet. The activity of the virus has greatly weakened, but it is necessary for all of us to continue to adhere to basic epidemiological measures, such as wearing masks, regular hand disinfection and maintaining social distancing, in order to successfully finish the fight against coronavirus.

If you'd neverthless like to have the test done, this is what it will cost you.
