COVID-19 News in Past 48 Hours
- In Bjelovar-Bilogora County, an elementary school student from Velika Pisanica tested positive for COVID-19, which is why two classes will be placed in self-isolation.
- As Jutarnji list reported, two educators tested positive for COVID-19 in the kindergarten at Malešnica in Zagreb, where the wife of Minister Beroš works. She is not among them. That is why six educators, one custodian and 30 children are now in self-isolation. The first case was reported on August 31 and the second on September 3.
- More Croatia counties are implementing safety measures in an attempt to control the transmission of COVID-19. Those include reducing the number of participants at weddings, funerals, wakes, and other private and public events. A full summary of implemented county measures can be found here.

COVID-19 PCR Test or Self-Isolation Required for Third County Nationals
This applies to third country national passengers entering Croatia for permitted tourism or other business reasons or who have other economic interests, as well as people travelling for educational purposes.
These passengers may enter Croatia without the obligation of self-isolation upon presentation of a negative nasal and pharynx swab test for COVID-19, not older than 48 hours (starting from the time of taking the swab until arrival at the border crossing), or with the obligation of 14 days quarantine/self-isolation if they do not have a negative PCR test.
If third-country nationals have a test older than 48 hours upon entering Croatia, they will be allowed to enter Croatia. However, they will be required to self-isolate and test again in Croatia at their own expense. The above also applies to passengers and crew members on yachts. People who do not present a negative PCR test result are subject to a mandatory 14-day quarantine/self-isolation measure.
People who have a negative PCR test, and are on the self-isolation list, whether they’ve been on the list for seven days or have re-tested because they had a test older than 48 hours when entering Croatia, are to be removed from the self-isolation list.
