As October 13, Croatia has recorded 372 new cases of COVID-19 disease, which is among the highest numbers since the start of the pandemic. We are considered to be at the beginning of the so-called second wave of the pandemic, similar to other countries of Middle Europe.
The Croatian government wants to avoid the second lockdown at any cost. That's why the new measure related to masks was announced yesterday and came into force today. Masks are now obligatory in all indoor places, including bars, offices, markets, etc.
When you want to visit the coffee bar or a restaurant, you need to enter the place with the mask on. After you sit down, you can take it off. When you go to the toilet or you want to leave the place, you need to put the mask on again.
This new measure is expected to lower down the numbers, which have been increasing over the previous weeks.
Croatia did not impose any restrictions for visitors from the European Union. There is no need for self-isolation or negative PCR upon arrival to Croatia.
