An analysis of the country’s legislative battle with the COVID-19 epidemic could already have been published in a very dense book. It would be a little exaggeration to say that shortly after the Coronavirus epidemic, we had an epidemic of various generally binding legal measures that restrict the rights of citizens, especially with regard to business, assembly, etc.
Basic civil rights, which include the aforementioned right to conduct business, the right to assembly, the right to family life and others, are primarily protected by a constitutional regulation, the Charter of Fundamental Rights and Freedoms. It may only be restricted if it is necessary in the interest of a democratic society, such as the protection of health, order, security, etc., and only by law or a minimum statutory law promulgated on its basis. Such a law is Law No. 240/2000 Coll. , On Crisis Management, and Law No. 258/2000 Coll. , On the protection of public health, Law No. 94/2021 Coll. Pandemic, said regarding the special measures in the Covid-19 pandemic.
