Government extends duration of state of emergency until 14 February, will allow children's groups to run
The state of emergency in the Czech Republic will now apply until 14 February. Backed by the consent of the Chamber of Deputies, the Andrej Babiš cabinet made the decision to extend it at a special meeting on Friday 22 January 2021.
The state of emergency in the Czech Republic was supposed to end on 22 January. On the basis of the ongoing unfavourable epidemiological situation (in Czech language), the government asked the Chamber of Deputies to extend it once again by 30 days. In the end, Deputies decided that the state of emergency (in Czech language) can be declared by the government up until 14 February. The government then decided to also extend the valid crisis measures meant to suppress the spread of COVID-19 up until the same date.
The government made a minor adjustment to the crisis measure restricting retail and services (in Czech language), now allowing childcare facilities for children up to three to run on a daily basis. This measure is also to be in place until 14 February.
