Subsequently, they must submit a second PCR test performed in the Czech Republic, the soonest on the 5th day after arrival. The result must be immediately submitted to the appropriate hygiene station electronically. Self-isolation is required until a second negative test is submitted (in practice five-day quarantine is ordered). It is also mandatory to wear an FFP2 respirator (or a respirator of the same or higher efficiency) everywhere outside the home 10 days after arrival.
