Cafes in Croatia are again allowed to serve their customers indoors as of September 1, after they were closed for nine months due to the coronavirus pandemic, reported state news agency HINA.
Under the new rules announced by the national COVID-19 response team, cafes and restaurants can stay open until midnight, customers must be seated while drinking and eating and must wear face masks before taking their seats and when going to the toilet.
In late November 2020, the national COVID-19 response team ordered cafes to close their indoor premises for business, allowing only those with terraces to operate.
About 1,100 closed catering establishments would not reopen and 10,000 jobs have been lost in this sector since the outbreak of the pandemic, the head of the independent association of cafe and restaurant owners from Zagreb, Žaklina Troskot, told HINA.
