In December 2019, several cases of pneumonia were detected in the city of Wuhan in China. Many common causes of pneumonia have been ruled out as respiratory infections and confirmed infection with a new coronavirus. The new coronavirus was named SARS-CoV-2, and the disease caused by the virus was named COVID-19. The disease is manifested by fever, cough, and a feeling of shortness of breath, which is common for pneumonia. COVID-19 infection is now spreading across Europe. For preventive reasons and in order to prevent the spread of infection and to facilitate the organization and adoption of measures, the Republic of Slovenia declared an epidemic on 12 March 2020 at 6 pm on the basis of Article 7 of the Infectious Diseases Act due to the growing number of coronavirus infections. May 15, 2020 epidemic was officially canceled. Despite the announcement of the end of the epidemic in Slovenia, some preventive measures taken with the aim of containment still remain, as there has been a significant increase in COVID-19 infection since mid-August.

RE-MANDATORY USE OF PROTECTIVE MASKS IN PUBLIC SPACES AND PUBLIC TRANSPORT

The government has taken some measures to limit the re-spread of the covid-19 virus, including the mandatory wearing of protective masks indoors and on public transport.

Notwithstanding the encouraging sedation, the risk of spreading still exists, so distance, hand hygiene and coughing should be strictly observed and patients should be isolated. In all enclosed public spaces, hand disinfection and wearing a mask or scarf are mandatory. The same applies to passengers in public transport, who must wear a protective mask and disinfect their hands when entering and during transport. Wearing a mask or scarf is mandatory also in crowdy public space, when people can not keep 1,5 metres safe distance.
