Recommendations by the Ministry of Health for citizens of the Czech Republic and other persons returning from affected regions


In view of the current epidemiological situation, the Ministry of Health requests all citizens who are now returning from affected regions to stay at home after they return, and to contact and consult their doctor or the hygiene station in their region by TELEPHONE. A doctor/epidemiologist at the respective hygiene station will then decide on the further course of action.

We recommend that travellers who were in these regions in the period starting from the middle of January 2020 monitor their state of health over the following 14 days, focusing on symptoms of incipient respiratory diseases, such as fever with a temperature of over 38°C and difficulty breathing. If you experience such respiratory disease symptoms, stay at home, limit contact with others and contact your doctor by telephone. He or she will organise further provision of medical care in cooperation with the regional hygiene station. 

If you suspect you have been infected with the coronavirus (you are exhibiting symptoms and have been to an affected region), please do not go to your doctor’s surgery, but rather contact him or her by telephone!
