STA, 31 December 2020 - The long-standing ban on travel between municipalities will be temporarily lifted between noon on 31 December and 8pm on 1 January to allow limited New Year's gatherings. The 9pm curfew remains in place.

The New Year's rules were determined by the government late last night and are the same as for Christmas.

This means up to six people over age 15 from two households may gather privately, whereas gatherings in public remain prohibited.

There will be no fireworks either as the sale and use of fireworks is banned.

Jelko Kacin, the government's Covid-19 spokesman, said the decision came after the government conducted a comprehensive estimate of the current epidemiological situation.

He said a lot of attention was dedicated to make mass testing with rapid antigen tests more widely available after New Year's to try and limit the spread of coronavirus.
