Reuters is reporting that the Czech Republic will close its land borders to travellers crossing from Germany and Austria as it struggles to deal with coronavirus.
Of more relevance, the country will ban travel to and from 15 countries seen as posing a high risk of infection.
The list includes the UK, Italy, Sweden, Norway, France, Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Denmark, Switzerland, China, Korea and Iran.
The only exceptions will be for foreigners with residency in the Czech Republic and to cross-border workers.
The ban will start at midnight on Saturday (ie 00.00 Saturday).
You won’t be missing much by not going. As part of the state of emergency, which will last for at least 30 days, sports centres, spas and galleries will be closed. Restaurants will be forced to close at 8pm and catering outlets in shopping centres will be closed entirely.
At the time of writing (4.45pm) British Airways flights to Prague are still showing as operating on Friday.
