Rules and recommendations

The operation of institutional care (the form of childcare defined by Czech law) facilities is not limited. In presence education continues unaffected.

There is an exception from the obligation to wear a nose and mouth covering within all educational facilities providing institutional and preventive educational children’s care, related school facilities, and educational centers.

Maintaining increased hygiene measures remains crucial. Please try to minimize social contact with individuals outside the facility. Other recommendations can be found in the Hygiene section. Hygiene measures related to the specific facility are determined by a director of a facility. Thus, we recommend checking current rules regularly (e.g. on the websites of the facility).

These facilities have the right to activate so-called working quarantine (in Czech “pracovní karanténa”) in case of necessity (lack of personnel). More information on how the working quarantine works can be found on the page Testing in social care facilities and health services.

We all are going through a difficult time right now, if you need any psychological help or tips on how to cope with stress, check the section Psychological help.
