STA, 23 October 2020 - The government has set more details regarding lockdown measures and exceptions to the ban on crossing Slovenia's statistical regions, as the whole country was declared a red zone on Thursday, including the coastal Obalno-Kraška region, the only one that was still orange-coded.
The government decided on Thursday that delivery of food, drinks, medications and basic necessities as well as room service will be allowed during curfew between 9pm and 6am. The curfew also does not apply for persons who are transiting the country or coming home from abroad.
The government also specified the rules for exceptions to the ban on crossing the regions for close family members, who can travel to another region together when going there to do maintenance or seasonal work on their property.
In line with the changed government decree, the exception applies for close family members such as a spouse, partner or a divorced spouse or partner who is paying alimony, their parents, legitimate or illegitimate child, adopted child or a child in the process of adoption, when they are travelling together.
The exception in place for providing care for a family member, now also applies for parenting and contacts with one's child.
On Saturday, Slovenia will go into a full lockdown for a week, meaning that hotels, shopping centres, and student dorms will close as well, with more details here.
