The result of Havlíček’s weekend negotiations with the representatives of the regions is an agreement on the possible gradual release of shops, services and also cultural and sports facilities. Shops should come first, which Havlíček wants to suggest to the government this week.
The Trade Association welcomes Havlíček’s proposal. But he sees it as an effort to be faster than the Constitutional Court.
According to the Minister, their possible opening would be accompanied by strict hygienic conditions regarding the maximum number of customers per area, the obligation of drapes, distances, disinfection and other measures. The Ministry of Industry and Trade will specify them in the coming days, but according to the minister, they will not be surprising. “We do not want to bully anyone now, we will only pay attention to compliance with protective measures,” Havlíček said. According to him, respirators will not be mandatory in shops.
The release of services and other operations will depend on the further development of the pandemic situation. “If it turns out that we are managing the situation and it will go well, then other establishments could follow later,” the minister said.
Cuba appreciated that the negotiations led to progress. According to him, it turned out that the extension of the state of emergency at the request of the regions was not a blank check for the government. “It is a legal framework for managing a pandemic,” he stressed. Regarding the possible disintegration of Cuba, he said that it was necessary to manage the pandemic situation, but also that the society would slowly open up and the state would trust the people more. He mentioned in particular the need to open schools. The return of students to schools should begin on March 1, with antigen testing for COVID-19.
The government has banned retail sales in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. Exceptions are grocery stores, pharmacies, drugstores, florists, opticians, haberdashery and stationery. Only basic goods can be offered in stores. For example, people do not buy underwear, adult shoes or electronics in stone shops.
In stores, there is a limit of 15 square meters of operating space per customer, at checkouts or counters there are signs to keep the distance of two meters. Customers should disinfect their hands when entering the store, ideally only one household member should go shopping.
