Government: They're mandatory only in Belgrade, but wear masks. Measures can be tightened anywhere
The Crisis HQ will be adopting measures gradually in certain cities, which may be tightened at any time if they are not respected or prove to be insufficiently effective
Today, after a session of the Crisis HQ set up to fight coronavirus, the government of Serbia made an appeal on all citizens in Serbia to wear masks, maintain distance, use disinfectants and wash their hands regularly.
"The Crisis HQ for COVID-19 disease suppression met today and discussed the current epidemiological situation in Serbia, when new measures were adopted to prevent the spread of coronavirus and protect the health of citizens," the Serbian government said in a statement.
It is added that, given the varying epidemiological situation in Serbian cities, the Crisis HQ will be adopting measures gradually in certain cities, which may be tightened at any time if they are not respected or prove to be insufficiently effective.
"Starting tomorrow, June 30, it is obligatory to wear masks in public transport and in all closed spaces in the territory of the City of Belgrade, without exception. All visitors and guests in shopping malls, cafes, restaurants, night clubs, beauty salons, gyms and the like, are under obligation to constantly wear protective masks throughout their stay in these closed spaces. It is important to note that masks still do not have to be surgical - all non-surgical and protective masks that citizens may make themselves are acceptable," the statement said.
As for the rest of Serbia, the strongest recommendation to all citizens is to wear protective masks in all closed spaces and transportation, maintain distance, use disinfectants and wash their hands regularly.
"In this way, the government and the Crisis HQ are appealing on all citizens to respect the measures and recommendations, behave responsibly and take care of their health and the health of their loved ones. The Government of Serbia and the Crisis HQ for suppression of the infectious disease COVID-19 will continue to monitor the development of the epidemiological situation in the Republic of Serbia with greatest attention, day by day, and continue informing citizens about everything."
