To date Croatian health care workers have administered 4 513 946 tests for COVID-19. As of yesterday 5 194 258 doses of the vaccine have been administered, with 65.48% of the adult population having received at least two doses of the vaccine.

The Civil Protection Headquarters has decided to ease coronavirus measures. As of Monday, milder epidemiological measures are in force in schools, with masks are no longer mandatory for students and teachers in classrooms. They will remain mandatory in common areas and on organized transportation. The self-testing program is also still in place.

"As of tomorrow citizens will no longer have to provide proof of vaccination, recovery from the virus or a negative test to enter public institutions. Given the level of immunity in the population achieved through vaccination and recovery from the virus, especially after the arrival of the Omicron variant, there is no longer a threat to the functioning of public institutions," said the head of the National Civil Protection Directorate, Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Davor Božinović.
