The new coronavirus is losing its strength every day.
Epidemiological conditions are relatively favourable. Yesterday, there were 23 percent fewer infections compared to last week.
The situation in hospitals is also favourable, Health Minister Janez Poklukar told at a news conference.
The government has therefore already lifted most of the measures. It also decided today that you will no longer have to wear masks in schools from Monday onwards!
Masks can be put away by pupils, students and teachers during lessons.
The National Institute of Public Health’s recommendations to curb the spread of the virus still apply in schools.
Meanwhile, the method of issuing a certificate of illness is changing. Until now we obtained it after a positive result on the PCR test, now it will be possible to obtain it on the basis of a positive rapid test. This is also the case in the European Union.
The minister added that it is never too late to protect and vaccinate.
Namely, a new vaccine Novavax has arrived in Slovenia, which differs from the previous ones, as it is a classic vaccine.
These changes will need to be considered by vaccination centres.
They also began to prepare in medical institutions for the possible arrival of refugees from Ukraine who would need medical care.
All costs will be covered by the Ministry of Health.
