58th regular session of the Government of the Republic of Slovenia

At today’s regular session, the Slovenian Government adopted amendments to the Ordinance on temporary restrictions on sports programmes. Those amendments relate primarily to testing. Amendments to the Ordinance determining the conditions for entry into the Republic of Slovenia for the purpose of containment and control of the infectious disease COVID-19 stipulate that printed confirmation is sufficient for entry without quarantine for those who have recovered from COVID-19.

The amendments to the Ordinance on temporary restrictions on sports programmes stipulate that professionals who organise training for athletes and those who organise recreational sporting activities that may be carried out in accordance with Article 2 of the aforementioned ordinance shall be subject to a weekly rapid antigen test, unless they submit a negative test result (PCR or rapid antigen test). Also amended was the provision that defines proof of exceptions for persons who have already been vaccinated. The time required to build up protection following vaccination depends on the vaccine itself.

The Government also adopted the Ordinance amending the Ordinance determining the conditions for entry into the Republic of Slovenia for the purpose of containment and control of the infectious disease COVID-19, and concluded that, with regard to exceptions for entry without a negative test and mandatory quarantine (those who have recovered from COVID-19 and those who have been vaccinated against that disease), proof may also take the form of results from a PCR or rapid antigen test, which persons can themselves print from the zVEM eHealth portal. This reduces the unnecessary burden of issuing confirmation by personal physicians.
