Czechia enters lockdown amid surge in COVID-19 cases

From Thursday until the end of the state of emergency on Nov. 3, most stores will be closed and the movement of people restricted.

Due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases, the Czech government decided to add to restrictions from the past weeks and reimpose a lockdown. The new restrictive measures essentially copy the first lockdown in spring.

After Wednesday’s special meeting of the government, Prime Minister Andrej Babiš explained that the measures against the spread of COVID-19 implemented in past weeks have not been working, and the cabinet had to proceed with further restrictions.

At the same time, he apologized to citizens, entrepreneurs, and affected employees for making their lives more complicated. However, the government believes the lockdown is necessary as the government wants to prevent the health care system from collapsing, which, according to current predictions, could happen between Nov. 7 and Nov. 11.

From 6 a.m. on Thursday until the end of the state of emergency on Nov. 3, retail stores will be closed. There will be exceptions for shops offering essentials.
