Slovenia - End of Corona virus epidemic
Updated: May 26
The Slovenian government late on Thursday 14 May 2020 called an official end to its coronavirus epidemic, becoming the first European country to do so, after authorities confirmed less than seven new coronavirus cases each day for the past two weeks.
People now arriving in Slovenia from other European Union states will no longer be obliged to go into a quarantine for at least seven days as was the case from early April. Citizens who show signs of coronavirus infection will still not be allowed to enter the country. A quarantine of at least 14 days will remain in place for people from non-EU states, except for some exemptions including diplomats and people transporting cargo. Citizens will still have to follow basic rules to prevent a possible spread of infection, it is required to wear masks in indoor public spaces, stand at least 1.5 metres (5 feet) apart and disinfect hands upon entering public spaces.
Earlier this week the government was withdrawing measures that were restricting air transport in Slovenia. The restrictions are lifted for international air services from both the European Union and third countries. In the past few days the airport has been preparing for the reception of the first passengers and installed necessary safety measures to restart passenger traffic.
All bars and restaurants as well as small hotels with up to 30 rooms will be allowed to open next week.
