Czech Republic, Jan 27 (BD) – The validity of a Covid-19 vaccination certificate will be extended indefinitely when a person receives a booster dose. This change will take effect on February 15th. Certificates of those who have had two doses will be valid for 270 days. From January 31st, students at higher vocational schools (VOS) will need to undergo regular testing.
“The pandemic is developing according to the predictions which the government uses to make its decisions,” said Fiala on Wednesday. “We are continuing to monitor and evaluate the situation and the measures in force. Based on this, we have decided that no one who has had a positive PCR test in the last 30 days needs to be quarantined.” This measure enters into force on January 31st.
“We will be keeping all of our promises,” said Fiala in an interview with CNN Prima News this week. He also said that, depending on the development of omicron, “we could return to normal life in March.”
