Outdoor and indoor events get a green light in the Czech Republic

Outdoor events with a capacity of up to 700 people and indoor events with a capacity of up to 400 people may take place as early as May 17

Following a meeting with Minister of Health Petr Arenberger, Chief Hygienist Pavla Svrinová, and members from cultural organizations, Zaorálek made the announcement. They allegedly settled on a schedule till September. He intends to make the information public on Monday.

In recent days, Zaorálek has complained that sports or other aspects of life take precedence over culture. For example, he criticized the fact that only PCR tests were considered for cultural events, which people would pay for (one costs around 1,500 crowns), whereas antigenic tests, which are free, are sufficient elsewhere.
