U.S. Embassy, Ljubljana: Health Alert (February 12, 2021)
February 12, 2021

Dear U.S. Citizen in Slovenia: 

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control has provided updated guidance on effective masks.

Given the improved epidemiological situation in Slovenia, the Slovenian government announced the following loosening of restrictions, effective 15 February:

  • Entry/Borders: You may now enter the country without quarantine if you have proof of a vaccination, proof of recovery from a prior Covid infection, or (as before) a negative Covid test result.  Border crossings from Italy, Austria, and Hungary are no longer restricted to specific crossing points.
  • Gatherings:  Gatherings of 10 people or fewer are now permitted with proper precautions, such as masks.
  • Internal travel:  Restrictions on movement between regions have been eliminated.  Curfew (2100-0600) remains in effect
  • Stores: Open.  Restaurants or bars remained closed for in-person dining.  Employees of businesses that have reopened may present proof of a test within seven days, instead of a daily test.
  • Ski resorts:  Open.  Users must show a negative Covid test result taken within the last seven days. (See testing centers).
  • Schools:  All primary school students, and high school students in their final year, can return to school.

For additional information from the Slovenian government, including reaching their call center, see their English-language Covid page.
