Because we want everybody to enjoy the festival in good health and without consequences, we have prepared a summary of basic covid-19 safety rules that follow the measures imposed by the Government of the Czech Republic.

Let’s bring a confirmation of freedom from infection

It is the festival organizer’s duty to follow the measures imposed by the government. Tours in buildings will be organized in small groups depending on the capacity of each building. Every visitor of the 2021 Open House Prague Festival is obliged to carry with them one of the following types of documents:

  • a confirmation of freedom from infection based on one of the coronavirus tests (PCR test in the last 7 days, POC antigen tests carried out by a health service in the last 72 hours),
  • a confirmation of having undergone the disease in the last 6 months,
  • a certificate confirming that at least 14 days have passed since your final dose of vaccine (2nd dose)

As of August 1, 2021, the organizer is currently not obliged to check confirmations of freedom from infection when there are max. 20 people on tour indoors, or, alternatively, when no more than 75 % of the building’s capacity is used. This means that we will only check confirmations in selected buildings, depending on the type of the building and the size of group tours. Please note that the capacity of tours can change during the festival weekend, depending on the number of visitors in each building.

We recommend that you download Tečka, an official application where you can upload your covid-19 vaccination certificate through a QR code. You can upload more certificates in the app (e.g. certificates of family members).

Let’s cooperate and be considerate

If you don’t feel healthy, especially if you have the cold, cough, if you are running a temperature, feel nauseous or have a headache, do not attend any of the festival events. Please cooperate with our volunteers.

Let’s wear respirators on tours

When indoors, it is obligatory to wear a respirator or some other safety masks with at least 94 % filtration efficiency (class FFFP2 / KN 95). This condition applies outdoors as well if there are more than 30 people attending and the 2-meter distance cannot be maintained (this does not apply to family members).

Let’s keep a safe distance

Please keep the required 2-meter distance from other attendees (unless you are members of one family). Where not possible, please wear a respirator or some other safety mask (as described above).

Inform us if you test positive

If you test positive for covid-19 in the 10 days after you visit the festival, please contact us immediately at
