In view of the recent slight increase in the number of new infections, Slovakia wants to tighten its entry regulations. As Health Minister Marek Krajci explained yesterday, all those entering the country from December 7 onward will have to show a negative CoV test or will be required to go into quarantine. Krajci explained that the infection rates in all neighboring countries are higher than in Slovakia.
In principle, this regulation has been in effect since November 16, but up to now, commuters and students, who account for a large part of daily border crossings, have been excluded. As a concession, however, the minister announced for these groups that a rapid antigen test up to two weeks old would be sufficient for them, while most other travellers need a PCR test that is no more than 72 hours old.
Slovakia has conducted mass tests on almost the entire population on several weekends since October 31.
