“Given the fact that we are very close to Italy and that a large number of people from Istria go to work in Italy every day, we have been monitoring the situation in Italy since the beginning of February and preparing in time for the possible spread of the infection. As soon as the situation in Italy worsened, we immediately took appropriate measures that ultimately determined the entire course of the successful fight against Covid-19. Eight days before the national crisis team introduced protective measures, we have already restricted free movement in Istria, reduced the working hours of certain institutions and companies, introduced mandatory wearing of masks indoors and various other measures, thus preventing the full extent of the COVID pandemic. 19 “, The director of the Istrian Tourist Board, Denis Ivošević, told sea-help.eu, and reports RTL.de. This is a big step forward, because now the restriction of travel to a country will be transparent and automated, without political “games”, which is a prerequisite for the stability of tourism. After that Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs published on its website that only Istria in the heart of Europe stands out in green, now the same news is reported by the German media. Istria canceled all major events in the summer season, but developed some other concepts according to the epidemiological situation. “We have invested a lot to make the holiday safe for everyone involved. “, Ivosevic told the Süddeutsche Zeitung. As the German market is our main emitting market, and especially Istria, which, among other things, has cooperation with FC Bayern, such news is extremely positive. Regardless of the current situation and the tourist season, the situation in Istria throughout the summer, as now, is a big pledge for 2021 because Istria has justified the trust and proved that they are ready to react quickly, which gives great security to tourists. It is security and timely response to the emergency situation that will be the currency that will be sought in the second year. Just last week, an agreement was reached between the EU member states, which defined them common criteria to mark regions by the number of coronavirus infected. Based on the data provided by the Member States to the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control, a map of EU countries by different colors or zones (green, orange, red, gray) – and by regions, which is crucial. And that is why it is not surprising that the media focuses on Istria, because while other countries are introducing curfews and increasingly strict epidemiological measures, Istria is the only one of all countries and regions in green. / / / AGREEMENT BETWEEN EU MEMBER STATES: DEFINED COMMON CRITERIA FOR MARKING REGIONS BY NUMBER OF CORONAVIRUS INFECTED At an early stage, Istria sought a regional approach to the restriction of free movement, ie to map epidemiologically and look at each county individually, both in Croatia and in the EU, and took epidemiological measures that citizens adhered to, both before and today. region with the least number of new cases, both in Croatia and in Europe. Source: RTL.de When the number of corona infections in Croatia increased in the summer, Istria reacted immediately. Wearing protective masks became mandatory in all stores, and hands had to be disinfected before entering the store. Only 15 customers were allowed to enter the supermarket on 100 square meters of retail space. For weekly outdoor markets, 20 visitors were allowed per 100 square meters of space, also with the obligatory wearing of masks. Likewise, public transport drivers were no longer allowed to transport people without masks. Special precautions were also applied on the beach, such as deckchairs that were widely spaced and regularly disinfected. It seems that tourists and residents of Istria behaved in an exemplary manner in order to preserve their small green oasis in the middle of the red crown pandemic, they conclude in the RTL report.
