Croatia is hoping that EU countries will continue to ease coronavirus restrictions as the peak tourist season begins. The Croatian economy is heavily reliant on the tourism sector.

According to the National Civil Protection Directorate 86 new positive coronavirus test results have been registered over the past 24 hours, with a test positivity rate of 2.2 percent. Meanwhile, more and more vaccination stations around the country are now vaccinating citizens without a previously scheduled appointment.

The German Public Health Institute has placed Zadar County in the low risk category, due to a recent spike in positive test results. This means that anyone entering Germany from Zadar County will need proof of a negative test result or have to go into self-isolation for two weeks.

The head of the National Civil Protection Directorate, Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Davor Božinović commented on the news today: "The message to their citizens is; don’t go to those regions of Europe, those regions of Croatia, or those counties, where there is a higher incidence rate of the coronavirus. And that can't be in anyone's interests. We're still at the beginning of the tourist season, and there's still enough time for all of us to most seriously understand our role dealing with the epidemic and stopping its spread."
