Deputy PM Havlíček: all shops could reopen before end of November

All shops, restaurants and services could open before the end of November, Deputy Prime Minister Karel Havlíček told journalists at a press briefing in Prague on Friday.

The deputy prime minister said that if the epidemiological situation continues to improve the government would downgrade the risk-level to three in ten days’ time, which would enable stores, restaurants and services to reopen under strict safety measures.

This would include, for example, only one customer per 15 square meters in stores. The same conditions would apply in libraries.
