Hobby schools and hobby groups

Hobby education and recreational activities must follow all the rules and recommendations for limiting the spread of the virus. When participating in hobby groups, use personal equipment, avoid shaking hands and hugging if possible, keep a safe distance from others, and follow the recommendations of dispersion even in outdoor conditions.
Restrictions in force

In order to avoid the spread of the virus and getting infected, to protect the life and health of the people and to ensure the functioning of the society, it is necessary to follow the enacted restrictions and guidelines.

How to safely participate in recreational activities?

  • To organise recreational activities in the conditions of the spread of the coronavirus in a way that is safe for everyone, the rules and recommendations established to prevent the spread of the virus must be followed.
  • 12-18 year olds and schoolchildren and youths turning 19 during the 2021/2022 academic year do not have to present a COVID certificate or a negative test result provided that they are asymptomatic and studying at a general education or vocational school, as they have an opportunity to participate in rapid testing taking place at schools several times a week.
  • Adults (including 18+ youths who do not go to school) may participate:
    - with a COVID certificate proving that they have completed the course of vaccinations, received an additional dose or recovered from the disease and received one dose of the vaccine (equated to a vaccinated person) no more than a year ago
    - with a certificate proving that they have recovered from COVID-19 and no more than six months (180 days) have passed since the moment the diagnosis was confirmed.
    - with a medical certificate affirming that vaccination is contraindicated to the person for health reasons.

  • The COVID certificate does not need to be presented if the recreational activity takes place in an outdoor area with unrestricted territory (e.g. hiking in the woods).
  • Even if wearing a mask is not mandatory, it helps to prevent the spread of the virus as a precaution and is therefore recommended (e.g. in dance or song groups, and especially if you belong to a risk group).
  • As a rule, recreational activities take the form of contact learning, in which only healthy students, adults, and teachers can participate.
  • When participating in recreational activities, set an example and teach your child the importance of hygiene, washing hands with running soap and water, and hand disinfection. Explain to your child why it is important to wash their hands often and not put them in their mouth. This will help ensure that basic hygiene requirements are met and make it safer for your child to participate in hobby groups.
  • Use personal equipment. If you are using rented equipment, disinfect it before use.
