STA, 8 October 2020 - Germany has added four Slovenian regions, including Ljubljana and its surroundings, on its list of international risk areas. Travellers from these regions must undergo a 14-day quarantine.
Osrednjeslovenska, Zasavska, Gorenjska and Savinjska were added to the quarantine list, the Robert Koch Institute announced on Wednesday evening.
Primorsko-Notranjska and Koroška, sites of major outbreaks respectively in a meat processing plant and a residential home for people with mental disabilities, were on the list before.
This means that six of Slovenia's twelve statistical regions are now considered risk areas by Germany.
Germany's red list is determined by the federal ministries of health, interior and foreign affairs.
The threshold is 50 new confirmed infections per 100,000 inhabitants in the past seven days, but other criteria are considered as well.
