Prague, March 13th 2020
Dear members and friends,
I hope you are doing as well as possible in this worldwide tense situation and here in the Czech Republic.
In line with the government emergency regulation, we are also canceling all events planned for the next few weeks. This concerns above all the planned Burgundy Wine tasting on March, 19th in the Holiday Inn and the regular Skål luncheon meeting on March, 26th in the Pentahotel.
The state of emergency was declared in the Czech Republic on March 12th, 2020. It is currently valid for 30 days.
From 14.3.2020 00:00 the following regulations apply –
• International train traffic and regular bus traffic will be discontinued. Private cars are still allowed to operate. Vaclav Havel / Prague Airport is also still open.
• Persons without permanent residence / tourists who were in the territory of the Czech Republic on March 12, 2020, 2:00 p.m., can only leave the country after March 14, 2020, 12:00 a.m. by private car, utility bus and plane.
• All airports except Václav Havel Prague Airport will be closed. Direct flights to and from China, South Korea and parts of Italy are temporarily suspended. You can get more information at the airport or from your airlines.
• Persons with a permanent or temporary stay in the Czech Republic (90 days) who are outside the Czech Republic on March 12, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. (= time of the announcement) may return, but may have to undergo a quarantine. Information on this can be found on the website of the Czech Ministry of Health.
• Persons with a permanent Czech residence or a temporary residence (90 days) and Czech citizens are not allowed to leave the country in one of the countries listed by the Ministry of Health. In the event leaving the country with a permanent or temporary stay (90 days), the residence permit would expire. These people may no longer enter the country during the emergency.
• The Czech Ministry of Health also provides information in English on behavioral rules and contact points in the event of suspected illness.
I wish you all the best and hope for better days coming up soon.
Your President and the members of the board
