Ever since the pandemic started, and then the easing of restrictions in public life, there is a debate as to whether people are required to wear masks or not.

The Croatian Institute of Public Health recommends to people to wear masks, but it is not mandatory.
Masks are currently mandatory only in public passenger transportation, ie buses, trams and other means of transport.

UPDATE July 12, 2020: Masks are obligatory in shops starting with Monday, July 13, 2020.

If you take a walk around some of the Croatian cities these days or visit a restaurant, you will notice that most people do not wear a mask. The Croats have relaxed a bit thanks to the good epidemiological situation.

Croatia has the third-lowest number of newly infected with the virus in the European Union. Only Slovenia and Slovakia are standing better in the terms of newly infected.

The Croatian borders for the citizens of the European Union are already open, and thousands of visitors are enjoying holidays in Croatia. The summer atmosphere is a bit more intimate this year, meaning public gatherings are not allowed, and it's necessary to maintain social distance in all aspects of social life.
