The government decided today to extend the declaration of the epidemic by 60 days from January 17, they announced after the session.
The epidemic was declared in the second wave on October 19, and its declaration has been extended since then. The Government Communication Office (Ukom) stated in a press release after the afternoon session that Slovenia was in the second epidemic wave, and that the new coronavirus infection was still spreading rapidly among the population, which was well above normal. The current epidemiological situation requires a new but limited declaration of the epidemic in the entire territory of Slovenia, as all statistical regions reach or exceed the level of incidence that requires the declaration of an epidemic, they added. Thus, no major release of anti-crown restrictions was expected.
New exception: landowners
According to the new law, dual owners or tenants of land in the border area or on both sides of the state border will be able to cross the state border unhindered if they cross the border for agricultural, agricultural or forestry work and return immediately after the work.
There are certain changes in the validity of the negative rapid test if an individual wants to enter Slovenia without ordering quarantine. According to the new law, a rapid antigen test submitted by a person upon entry into the country must not be older than 24 hours after the swab is taken, but it is still considered that it must be performed in an EU Member State or the Schengen area.
Negative quarantine termination test
There are no changes in PCR tests. It is still considered that they must not be older than 48 hours after the swab is taken and must be performed in an EU Member State or the Schengen area or by an organization or individual by the Institute of Microbiology and Immunology and the National Laboratory for Health, Environment and Food identified as relevant and credible and are listed on the website of the National Laboratory for Health, Environment and Food.
According to the new law, it will be possible for a person who is sent to quarantine upon entering Slovenia to interrupt the duration of the quarantine with a negative PCR or rapid antigen test, and there will no longer be a time limit when the test can be performed. Until now, it was considered possible to perform a test to end quarantine on the fifth day after posting.
Ireland on the red list
The new country on the red list, according to which quarantine is ordered upon entry into Slovenia (with the exception of negative PCR or rapid test), is Ireland.
In addition, at today’s session, the government adopted a decision to extend the emergency aid measure in the form of a monthly basic income for religious employees. The emergency aid measure in the form of a monthly basic income has been extended until the end of March.
