EVERYTHING KOVID MEASURES IN ONE PLACE: These are in force, and here are the ones we should respect for the holidays!
The Crisis Headquarters for the fight against the coronavirus was held in Serbia yesterday, and despite the fact that a new strain – omicron – has been registered in about ten people in our country, and unlike other countries that ban celebrations in squares, they are closing catering facilities and introducing holiday lockdown. we have not introduced new measures for the upcoming holidays. All the old ones remain in force, and in addition to the fact that kovid passes are mandatory in all catering facilities from 8 pm, it reminds of all other measures that are in force.
We should adhere to them, especially now that their even stricter control has been announced.
In Belgrade alone, as the head of the Belgrade Communal Militia, Ivan Divac, stated yesterday, there will be about 30 patrols of this service on the ground. Where there is a rigorous violation of the measures, they will empty the bar, and where there is a minor violation, they will sanction the individual.
100,000 people are expected to come to Belgrade, and a reception was organized in the center of the capital.
After yesterday’s Crisis Staff, prof. Dr. Darija Kisić Tepavčević, said answering the question whether it is allowed to welcome in the squares that gathering in the open space is less risk than gathering indoors.
– Staying in the outdoor environment is a significantly lower risk than staying indoors, especially in the winter when it is less ventilated, but regardless of the fact that they are less risky, there is a risk.
– Everything that is organized will be properly controlled. The distance is difficult to control when it comes to a large number of people.
