Unvaccinated must now present negative test at work after foreign trip

People in the Czech Republic who are not vaccinated or have not had Covid-19 in the last six months must from Friday present their employers with a negative test after returning from abroad. Otherwise, under current regulations aimed at curbing the spread of the virus, employers may not allow them to enter their place of work if they have arrived from a state with a high Covid risk. If they have come from a low or mid risk country they can work wearing a respirator until they have had a test for the coronavirus.

Critics say employers should not be allowed to keep tabs on where their staff spend their holidays.
