Hands have to be washed before coming aboard, after disembarking, after cleaning the ship or when the hands are visibly dirty, and in all other recommended situations (after going to the toilet, before eating, before and after touching your face and similar).

When using ventilation systems, special attention should be given to the state of the filters and maintaining the correct condition of the air exchange rate indoors. The proper functioning of the ventilation and air exchange equipment has to be checked. It is recommended to use ventilation with increased percentage of external air which circulates into the system, and to not use re-circulation mode in order to encourage the exchange of air which reduces the concentration of potentially infectious particles.

Covid-19 infection/outbreak

What does the traveller have to expect in destination in case of a Covid-19 infection?

Yes
If the persons cross the state border and develop symptoms of the disease after entering into the Republic of Croatia, they will stay in their hotel/accommodation and contact their reception/host, i.e. organiser of their arrival, via telephone, who will notify the epidemiologist on standby or the primary healthcare physician.
Outside of the working hours of the primary healthcare physician, the host of the foreign (official) person, who is exhibiting pronounced symptoms of the disease, calls the emergency medical services or contacts the closest COVID-19 infirmary via telephone.

If a person is exhibiting signs of the disease when entering the Republic of Croatia, the border police shall inform the border sanitary inspector and / or the sanitary inspector of the Regional or Central Office of the State Inspectorate. Such persons are recommended not to enter the Republic of Croatia, and if they have to cross the state border due to urgent reasons, they are sent to the available health institution for testing and treatment by the shortest possible route, that is, they are sent to be tested and undergo isolation. Any additional steps that the patient must follow in such a case will be specified on the spot by the medical authorities, according to the individual case.

Will the hotel be put under quarantine?

No
The hotel is unlikely to be quarantined (unless mass infection occurs) and the recommendations of the health authorities need be followed. After isolation/transportation of the guest, cleaning and disinfection shall be performed in the places where they have resided. Other necessary measures will be determined locally by the medical authorities and epidemiologists according to each individual case.

Will affected guests be separated in a different properties (Corona Hotel) or stay in the booked property? What about their co-travelers?

No
Depending on the severity of the case and local facility situation it may require the patient and his co-travellers to be moved. The necessary measures will be determined locally by the medical authorities and epidemiologists according to each individual case.
If one member of a family staying in a holiday property is positive, the other members will stay in self-isolation in the same property or where the local coronavirus crisis management team decides depending on the severity of each individual case and likelihood of further contamination.

Is it guaranteed that in case of a new Covid-19 outbreak there will be an early repatriation?

No

Who will arrange this/is responsible for it and who will cover the cost in such a case?

No
If the infected person is from an EU member state, the Croatian Health Insurance Agency (HZZO) will send an invoice to their country. If he or she is a third-country national and has no travel insurance, it is likely that they will need to cover the costs themselves.

Who can the traveller contact in case of problems (Covid-19 related)? Will there be a local representative?

Yes
In the event that symptoms of acute respiratory infection occur (cough, sore throat, elevated body temperature, shortness of breath/trouble breathing, loss of smell and taste) it is necessary to stay at hotel/accommodation and notify the hotel management/reception/host who will contact local health authorities and epidemiologist team on stand by. In the event that severe, life-threatening symptoms suddenly occur, the person should contact the emergency medical services (112).
