As of August 12, 2020, Croatia has recorded 130 new cases of COVID-19 disease in the last 24 hours. The day before there were 91 new cases.
These numbers are significate increase when comparing to the previous few weeks when there were less than 50 new cases per day.

The reason for the deterioration of the epidemiological situation is the nightlife. More than 20% of recorded cases originate from nightclubs, which are getting more crowded due to the increased number of foreign visitors in Croatia.

The Croatian Institute of Public Health has announced stricter controls in clubs. Clubs will remain open, but there must be a distance of 1.5 meters between groups of people who come to the club together. Additionally, the dance floor is not allowed to be used for dancing.
If inspectors find that epidemiological measures are not being followed, there will be no fines, but the club could be closed that evening, and visitors required to leave.

Croatia desires to improve its epidemiological situation in the upcoming period, to stay on a green list of safe countries to travel from UK, Slovenia, and Germany, which bring the highest number of tourists to the Croatian coast.
