Health minister: government will downgrade Covid risk on Friday

Health Minister Jan Blatný has said that the improving epidemiological situation merits an easing of coronavirus restrictions and should see the country move from the highest risk-level on the government’s five-grade scale to the second-highest as of next Monday.

This should allow for the gradual return to school of all primary school children, enable a maximum of six people to meet and shift the night curfew from 9pm to 11pm. An official announcement is expected on Friday.
