Prime Minister Janez Janša: Restriction of movement to municipalities from Tuesday onwards

On the social network Twitter, Prime Minister Janez Janša wrote that the Government is taking new measures due to the growing number of infected people. The restriction of movement to municipalities will thus be introduced on Tuesday, whereby the same exceptions will apply as in the spring. This restriction will initially be in place for a week for the whole of Slovenia and will be lifted gradually, starting with the regions that first limit the spread of the epidemic.

As Prime Minister Janez Janša wrote, "activities to provide additional capacities in healthcare are ongoing. Even in health resorts and hotels. There will be no need for tents or fairgrounds."

"The number of infected people, however, is increasing and the additional measures set out in the plan are being introduced. From Tuesday onwards, movement will be restricted to municipalities, with the same exceptions applying as in the spring. This restriction will initially be in place for seven days for the whole country and will be lifted gradually, starting with the regions that first limit the spread of the epidemic," stated Prime Minister Janez Janša, adding: "Let us do everything to minimise contact and to lift the restrictions as soon as possible. Let us protect lives, health and welfare," he wrote, adding the hashtag #WeCanDoIt.
