Coronavirus measures and information (COVID-19)
Last updated – 16.07.2021

Here we publish current and key information and recommendations for the protection of the health of citizens of the municipality of Kranjska Gora and all measures taken by the Government of the Republic of Slovenia to prevent the spread of coronavirus and other information intended for the tourism industry.

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.

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 again on the October 19th 2020.

The end of the epidemic

Slovenia has declared the end of the epidemic as of 15 June 2021. Despite the improved epidemiological situation, however, certain measures continue to apply:

  • Both service providers and guests from all countries are required to comply with the recovered-vaccinated-tested requirements (effective from 5 July 2021):
    • inside catering establishments,
    • inside tourist accommodation establishments (hotels, apartments, camps),
    • at cultural events,
    • at sports events,
    • at public gatherings and events with more than 100 participants,
    • at trade fairs,
    • at conferences and congresses,
    • in nightclubs and discotheques,
    • in casinos and gaming halls.

The recovered-vaccinated-tested requirements do not apply to children up to 18 years of age (at cultural and sports events, children up to 15 years of age) who are accompanied by close family members or guardians.

  • Subject to compliance with the RVT requirement*, face masks are no longer mandatory for:
    • guests in indoor hospitality establishments,
    • guests in accommodation establishments,
    • visitors of indoor fairs,
    • participants in indoor congress activity,
    • visitors of casinos, gambling halls and special gambling activities,
    • visitors of cultural events and
    • spectators at sports events.

In any other case, the use of face masks in enclosed public spaces remains mandatory. It is necessary to ensure a social distance of 1.5 metres outdoors. If that is not possible, the use of face masks is mandatory.

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.

Entry requirements

1.1 Passengers from the “Safe listed” EU and Schengen countries

NO QUARANTINE – FREE ENTRY

In the areas that are not included on the dark red or red list, no high risk of infection with SARS-CoV-2 is incured. A person arriving from these areas may enter Slovenia without a quarantine, but only if a proof is provided that they have not resided in a dark red or red listed area at least 5 days in a row prior arrival. If they are not able to prove this, the conditions for the dark red or red listed countries apply.

Travel announcement application “Enter Slovenia”

The Slovenian Police have developed a travel announcement application, “Enter Slovenia”, which provides help to users when entering our country, especially with regard to understanding the exceptions. The application specifies the control points at which people can cross the border. Depending on the purpose of their travel to Slovenia, a user may complete a form with their personal data. The data is not saved after the form is generated and is automatically deleted. The user may print out this form or save it on their mobile phone or a tablet and show it at a border control point or a control point within Slovenia.

Wash your hands regularly with soap! When sneezing or coughing, cover your mouth and nose according to cough hygiene. Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth with your hands! Stay at home as much as possible and don’t go to the shops unnecessarily.

As the call center is no longer operational from 12 June, citizens can contact the competent national authorities directly with questions about the new coronavirus and requests for assistance:

For medical recommendations and instructions, the competent services of the National Institute of Public Health are available to users on the telephone number +386 01 2441 729

When you have been diagnosed with a new coronavirus infection and your medical condition does not require hospital treatment at your own discretion, treatment of the infection is symptomatic. The most important thing, however, is to go into self-isolation and thus prevent further spread of the infection. At this link you can see how self-insulation works and what you need to pay special attention to.

Please follow the instructions below to prevent the spread of new coronavirus

· Stay home until you recover. Avoid contact with other people.

· Spend most of your time in a different room than other family members if at all possible. Limit contact with family members (maintain a distance of at least 1.5 meters between you and other family members).

· Ventilate the rooms in which you stay regularly. Ventilate the room for five to ten minutes several times a day.

· Observe proper cough hygiene (before coughing / sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with a paper towel or cough / sneeze into the upper part of the sleeve). Dispose of the tissue after each use.

· Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water and disinfect if necessary.

· Use your own cutlery / hygiene items, laundry and towels.

· Clean surfaces visibly contaminated with respiratory secretions; also clean other surfaces regularly. Use cleaners you have at home.

· Wash your laundry with regular washing powder at at least 60⁰C. In case of worsening of the condition (worsening of cough with purulent sputum, difficulty breathing, apathy and confusion, etc.), consult your personal physician over the phone about further measures.
