Rules and Recommendations

Courts remain in operation; however, it is necessary to observe all the hygienic measures and general measures defined by the specific court. If possible, it is recommended to prefer written communication.

When visiting the court proceeding, you must follow increased hygienic measures – disinfect your hands before entering the building. At the entrance, you may be asked to prove yourself by a declaration that you do not have any infectious disease, fever or symptoms of respiratory disease (especially coughing, sneezing or problems with breathing).

Nose and mouth covering is no longer mandatory.

Please prefer the written or electronic way to communicate with courts. You may as well use your electronic data box.

Courts may adopt their own measures, please see the list of courts in the Czech Republic (in Czech only).
