Farmers’ markets want loosening of new Covid-19 restriction

The Czech Association of Farmers’ Markets have called on the government to reconsider restrictions on such sites imposed in a bid to curb Covid-19 infections. A new measure says there may be no more than 20 persons in a 400 metre square space at farmers’ markets. However, this amounts to far more than the standard two-metre distance required and makes markets unfeasible to hold, say operators.

Restrictions introduced this week allow the sale of agricultural products only at markets. No consumption of food or drink is allowed on site.
