Wear a face mask in Croatia or expect a 500 Kuna fine

Written by  Dec 01, 2020

If you fail to wear a protective face mask you could face a fine of 500 Kuna. New, stricter Covid-19 measures were brought in by the Croatian government a few days ago and now they have announced the penalties for not following these rules. Not wearing a mask in places that are regulated that masks are obligatory will cost you 500 Kuna, and if you wear the mask with your nose sticking out the top that’s also a penalty.

At yesterday’s session of the government, the Minister of Health, Vili Beroš, reported on the details of the amendments to the Law on the Protection of the Population from Infectious Diseases, which included penalties for violating measures.

"The measure of obligatory wearing of a face mask, the prohibition of public and private gatherings are prescribed. The measures are prescribed to be carried out by police officers, civil protection, inspectors of the State Inspectorate. A fine of between 10,000 and 40,000 Kuna for businesses who organise illegal gatherings is prescribed," he said.

A fine of 500 Kuna will be applied if someone does not comply with the obligation to wear a face mask or medical mask properly.

And if you organise a private party in your home that breaks the new regulations then expect a fine of between 5,000 and 10,000 Kuna.
