Travel to Czech Republic allowed amid lockdown

 

Travelling to the Czech Republic to healthcare facilities or for medical reasons is allowed. This does cause some confusion as to whether or not this includes rehabilitation centres, wellness centres and spas. But it certainly excludes hotels with spas and wellness facilities.

Tourist hotels have been closed again, while masks must be worn indoors and outdoors.

A few months ago, the Czech Republic reopened borders for tourism, hoping the worst was over. But with the fastest and highest surge in cases ever to sweep the country, tourist bans, and tough lockdown measures have been reintroduced.

The Czech Republic is a major European destination that normally receives 10 million tourists every year, including 20,000 medical tourists and 80,000 wellness tourists.

The country had been regarded a safe destination, until recently. Due to the increase in the number of confirmed cases of Covid-19, people will be more concerned, and it will be harder for the country to regain the image of a safe destination. The effects of the situation could be felt for two more years.
