BELGRADE – No Belgrade curfew but gatherings of 10+ banned

While the Serbian government’s Crisis Headquarters stepped up epidemiological measures against the coronavirus on Thursday (9 July) by banning public gatherings of 10 or more people indoors and outdoors, it decided against introducing a curfew in Belgrade after the announcement had caused a string of protests, some violent, across the country, Prime Minister Ana Brnabić has said.

The working hours of indoor venues will be limited to from 6 am to 9 pm as of 10 July, while outdoor cafes will be allowed to work until 11 pm.

“In places where citizens acting responsibly contributed to preventing the need to introduce an emergency situation, there will be no measures, but if necessary or if the number of infected rises, we will introduce measures in these places,” Brnabić has said.
