Serbia closes borders due to coronavirus

Prime Minister Ana Brnabic has announced that as of tonight our borders have been closed and that Serbian Armed Forces members will be at the borders to assist the sanitary inspection and border police.

Speaking in a special broadcast of Radio Television of Serbia (RTS), Brnabic explained that borders remain open to Serbian citizens returning from abroad, as well as to diplomats and foreign nationals with a residence permit.

She pointed out that classes will start on Tuesday through RTS Planeta, RTS 3 and through digital textbooks.

According to her, all Serbian citizens who come from abroad must be subject to a 14-day self-isolation, and those who come from the focal areas must stay isolated for 28 days.

The police, military and local self-governments will be checking that people adhere to this rule, the violation of which provides for a sentence of up to three years in prison.
