The Regional Hygiene Station in Ostrava issues new Extraordinary Measures No. 20/2020 and No. 21/2020 (in Czech only) with effect from 14 August 2020 from 12:00 p.m. In most municipalities of the region, measures are being released, in the municipalities of Frýdek-Místek, Frýdlant nad Ostravicí, Třinec and Jablunkov the measures remain stricter for the time being. There are no new restrictions on the territory of the municipalities of Bruntál, Krnov and Rýmařov issued by the regional hygienic station. However, it is still necessary to respect the measures valid for the entire Czech Republic.

We are aware that the restrictions significantly affect the everyday life of all inhabitants of the Moravian-Silesian Region. However, it is necessary to prevent the further spread of the disease as soon as possible and the measures ordered should help to achieve this goal. We therefore ask all residents for understanding and discipline in complying with the conditions of these emergency measures.
