Travelers arriving in Slovenia from other European Union (EU) member states will no longer have to quarantine themselves for at least seven days. Foreign citizens who display symptoms of coronavirus will not be allowed to enter the country. A quarantine of at least 14 days will remain in place for those traveling from non-EU countries.
All bars and restaurants as well as small hotels with up to 30 rooms will be allowed to open this week. It’s expected that face masks will remain required in public, as will social distancing measures (at least 2 meters).

The strategy, which includes 2020 and beyond, provides a framework for safely reopening borders, health protocols to keep locals and visitors healthy and safeguards to reimplement restrictions should the epidemiological situation require.
