"Holidays are a joy, and it is important that this joy is not overshadowed by a spike in morbidity. We appreciate that representatives of religious organizations are doing everything to comply with quarantine rules. For its part, the government will continue to make every effort to make the state policy in the field of religion effective, efficient and aimed at the realization of the respective rights and freedoms of citizens," Shmyhal said.
He stressed the need for all religious organizations to observe COVID-19 restrictions and recommendations on holding worship services, religious rites, and ceremonies.
