The limitations on free movement have been imposed since March 16. People can go abroad only in urgent cases.
Deputy Health Minister Roman Prymula said in March, when he headed the Central Crisis Staff, that foreign travels may be restricted for one or two years.
Health Minister Adam Vojtěch (for ANO) recently said unrestricted travelling abroad cannot be expected this summer season. He said Czechs might go to selected countries in which the epidemiological situation is rather good, such as Croatia and Slovakia. ■
