Rules and recommendations
Due to the pandemic, it is difficult to hold general meetings of companies or membership meetings. However, the government passed a law that responds to the effects of the epidemic.
If it is not possible to meet in person to discuss a certain important issue the law defines the rules for taking decisions while emergency measures are in effect. This applies even if it is not enshrined in the articles of an association.
Specifically, it is possible to use technical tools such as teleconferencing or decision-making per rollam (i.e. by mail or e-mail).
The option applies in general to legal entities, i.e. Private Limited Company, corp, and societies.
Special regime measures have been taken in case of a meeting held in person with more than 20 participants, they are:
- each person must wear a FFP2, KN95 or N 95 class respirator,
- persons are seated so as to maintain a 1-seat gap between each other's seats (this does not apply to a group of persons sharing one household).
Furthermore, at least one of the following conditions must have been met by each person present (this has to be proven upon entering the venue):
- having survived a COVID-19 infection not longer than 180 days prior to the meeting,
- having got vaccinated, provided either the first dose has been administered at least 14 days prior to the meeting, or
- having undergone a PCR test, provided the testing has taken place not longer than 72 hours prior to the meeting.
The Act No. 460/2020 Coll. on using technical means of communication (e.g. online meetings) and per rollam decision making (e.g. by mail or e-mail) is from July 1 onwards not effective anymore.
