Although Croatia has been handling pandemic well so far, there is a chance that a tourist who arrives in Croatia gets coronavirus.
Here are the most important points from instructions written by the Croatian Institute of Public Health related to the procedure when there is suspicion or test positive confirmation of the virus.

Procedure if there is a suspicion of infection

If there is a suspicion of coronavirus infection, the tourist should go to see a doctor. If the doctor confirms that there is a suspicion of infection, the tourist will be tested for coronavirus.

Unless there are serious symptoms of the disease, tourist is required to self-isolate in his accommodation unit until the arrival of the test results. During that period he must not have contact with the host. Meals and other necessities will be served directly to his room without contact.

Guests who are part of the same family or group are also required to stay in their accommodation units until the arrival of the test results.

If the test results are negative, the guest's self-isolation is cancelled, and he can move freely again.

A guest who has been confirmed to have coronavirus and who has no serious symptoms of the disease should be accommodated in places prepared for isolation. These places are chosen by the local tourist community, and those could be either apartment, mobile home or dormitory.
The same applies to guests who are close contacts of the patient.

If the guest wishes to return back to his home country before the self-isolation expires, he may do so after consultation with the public health authorities of his home country. It is necessary to agree on the method and financing of a return trip to the home country.
