Croatia holidays: FCO issues worrying new warning for travel hotspot

“There have been reports of a number of coronavirus cases associated with visits to nightclubs,” states the FCO.

“You should exercise caution and follow social distancing rules when attending nightclubs or other busy venues.”

Though Croatia only recorded 180 new cases today, sudden increases in confirmed cases of the virus can result in rapid changes to travel corridors.

Such was the case with Spain and Belgium, both of which were rapidly axed from the travel corridor list following a surge.

However, the country is enforcing some coronavirus safety precautions to lessen the spread of the virus.

“It is mandatory for passengers to wear masks on public transport, taxis, shops and other commercial premises,” advises the FCO.

Croatian National Tourist Board Director Kristjan Staničić also emphasised how vital it is tourists follow the regulations currently in place.

“Croatia is a safe and well-prepared tourist destination,” he said.

Though most lockdown restrictions have been lifted, the FCO adds that holidaymakers should “follow instructions from local authorities.”

Although there has been a growth in cases linked to nightclubs, for the most part, the country’s epidemiological situation is viewed as positive.

While the country saw a national rise in cases last month, this has since fallen.

At the time of writing Croatia has recorded 6,050 cases since the beginning of the pandemic.

Of these, 5,078 have recovered.

The UK Government has advised that it continues to monitor developing situations across the world and update the travel corridor list accordingly.

The UK Ministry of Transport says that the re-evaluation of this air bridge list continues to be done every four weeks.

It adds that it may introduce “changes weekly, to reflect the changing panorama of international health”.
