After a little more than two years, more precisely 770 days since the beginning of the so-called pandemic in Croatia, almost all epidemiological measures were abolished at midnight on Friday night. Citizens are now left to try and return to the lives they led before the COVID-19 restrictions, many of which were illogical and contradictory.

The only measures that will remain in place are the mandatory wearing of masks in the health and social care system, and in pharmacies, and some restrictions with regards to border crossings. Epidemiologist at the Croatian Institute of Public Health, Dr. Tatjana Nemet Blažić: “The easing of measures when crossing borders applies to citizens from EU member states, who will no longer have to present an EU COVID-certificate. However, travelers from third countries, will have to present a valid COVID-certificate.”

The National Civil Protection Directorate decided to rescind the measures after agreeing that Croatia has achieved a high level of herd immunity, and that the coronavirus variants that are present in Croatia are much less virulent than the first strain. And while the measures have been rescinded, the decision to declare a pandemic in Croatia, which was adopted by the Health Minister in March of 2020, remains in force.
