Starting from March 11, the following restrictions apply:
Distance learning will continue until April 25 in general education schools, vocational schools and institutions of higher education, including for primary school students.
Additionally, the government strongly recommends not taking children to kindergarten and child care.
Only a student who requires educational support services, consultations to achieve learning results, is participating in practical studies or is taking exams or tests can be present in school buildings.
Youth work, hobby activities, informal education, and refresher training
All indoor activities related to youth work, hobby activities, informal education, and refresher training are prohibited. The restriction does not extend to the activities of people with special needs and rehabilitation.
These activities are allowed outdoors only if the 2+2 rule is adhered to. This means that no more than 2 people (including an instructor) can move around together, keeping at least a 2-metre distance from other people.
Depending on the activities, the recreational services go either under entertainment or hobby activities, sometimes also under sports, that are only allowed outdoors if it is ensured that no more than two people, including the instructor, are participating in the activities. For instance, the ski slopes are open because ski rental does not usually bring about organised activities that are attended by a group larger than two people. However, if the organiser of the activities is instructing more people at once, this activity is not allowed.
The restrictions do not apply to families and the activities of people with special needs, including the provision of social and occupational rehabilitation services.
