Those businesses which will be forced to stop operations once again following the COVID-19 restriction will receive compensations in full, 100% amount of the costs, Prime Minister Andrej Babiš stated.

On Monday, the government discussed returning to the fourth level of danger according to PES. The results of the meeting will be announced shortly but, most likely, the proposal will be passed. If the suggestion of the Minister of Health, Jan Blatný, is accepted, then measures will be tightened. That will mean closing the restaurants and other services, which just got opened. The period of time left for the restaurants to operate is unclear. However, the minister promised to keep the shops open.

“If the government decides to close some operations, we will, of course, compensate their costs 100%,” Babiš said.

The government is drafting a support plan for all affected segments.
