Dear goldpanners, friends

We keep receiving questions about the actual Covid-19 situation in the Czech Republic. We will do our best to keep you informed.

Covid-19 and travelling to the Czech Republic


(As of 24th July 2020)

New measures have been implemented in the Czech Republic, but primarily for indoor events, not for outdoor events like our Championships.


Here are few articles from our press and officials:

As per the Press conference of our Minister of Health care: “We understand the numbers are higher. These are increases that are relatively high, but on the other hand they are not evenly distributed and there are still local outbreaks of the disease, although there are more outbreaks, “said Vojtěch at the press conference.

The reason for the nationwide measures is the deteriorating epidemiological situation in the Czech Republic. The worst numbers are in the Moravian-Silesian Region, Jablonec and Prague.
