The epidemic was extended by 60 days!
The Slovenian government took new measures to improve the spread of the disease in the start of the new year. But it did not improve the statistic. Like all other countries around the world, the Slovenian government is responding to it with a series of new measures.
They decided to extend the adopted Ordinance starting from January 17, 2021. The epidemic will last until March 17, 2021.
In addition to the extended epidemic, what are the other measures?
The fact that they extended the epidemic by 60 days does not mean that they added any new measures. The epidemic, or proclaiming it, provides only a legal basis for any further action.
- The government has issued the Ordinance on prohibiting operations. They have the same exceptions as before, and in addition, they added the dry cleaners as an exception. Dry cleaners can now carry on with their operations.
- The government also updated the measures in the Ordinance on Crossing the Border. It includes a new exception for the entry into Slovenia from the country on the red list. And they would not have to go into quarantine or show a negative test for the SARS-CoV-2 virus. These are owners or tenants of land in the border area or on both sides of the border. But only if they are crossing the border with a neighboring country to do some agricultural works on their land. They have to return across the border as soon as they finish with their work.
- A negative PCR test and a rapid test are conditions for entry into the country. Now, the validity of the rapid antigen test is shorter. Now, it must not exceed 24 hours from smear removal.
- A person who was prescribed quarantine by the border patrol upon entering Slovenia can immediately be tested for the virus during the quarantine period. If the test results are negative, the quarantine can finish.
