COVID-19 – Serbia Lifts State of Emergency

May 07, 2020

On Wednesday, 6 May, the Serbian Parliament adopted the Decision on Abolition of the State of Emergency that was declared on 15 March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This decision comes as the result of significant decline of the spread of the virus, as well as decreased severity of the registered infections.

Although the state of the emergency has been lifted, which effectively ends the curfew and weekly lockdowns, certain restrictions that were introduced during the state of emergency to increase social distancing and curb the spread of the virus, will remain in force.

The Parliament also adopted the Act on Validity of the Decrees Passed by the Serbian Government During the State of Emergency. The Parliament abolished 11 decrees that were in force during the state of emergency, but also left 15 of them in force, which are mostly related to the fiscal and financial benefits aimed to alleviate the effect of the crisis.

In addition, the election commissions will adopt on 11 May decisions on the continuation of electoral activities.
