Croatia’s national tourist office insists the country remains a safe summer 2020 tourist destination.
New Covid-secure measures have been introduced for bars and nightclubs, with a focus on utilising outdoor areas and open spaces.
These include turning dance floor space in clubs into seated areas, with tables spaced at least 1.5 metres apart.
Operating hours have also been shortened to midnight.
"The epidemiological situation in Croatia is stable and favourable," said the tourist office on Wednesday (19 August).
The tourist office also stressed less than 40% of Croatia’s 1,371 active Covid cases were in the country’s coastal regions, which are more popular with tourists.
"This means that in most coastal areas, and on the [country’s] islands, the epidemiological picture is favourable, and they can be considered safe," it said in a statement.
Additional "intensified" Covid monitoring is ongoing, looking specifically at implementation of recommendations from the country’s government, as well as its civil protection and public health bodies.
"Last week, the National Civil Protection Headquarters introduced new measures and recommendations for the operation of catering facilities, with special emphasis on nightclubs with the aim of protecting the health of our guests from all parts of Europe," said Kristjan Stanicic, director general of the Croation National Tourist Board.
"Monitoring is continuous, and the situation is under control. The whole of tourism industry in Croatia is behaving responsibly and adhering to the prescribed epidemiological measures."
Croatia is understood to be among a handful of destinations the UK government is closely monitoring to gauge the current state of its coronavirus epidemic, along with Greece, Turkey and Italy.
In previous weeks, the government has assessed Covid data from across Europe on a Thursday before making a swift decision on whether to revoke a specific country’s quarantine-free travel corridor.
Spain was the first destination to have its travel corridor pulled, followed by France, Malta and the Netherlands.
