Slovenia and Bulgaria introduce quarantine for Macedonian travelers


Slovenia’s government has decided to introduce a mandatory 14-day quarantine for Macedonian citizens entering Slovenia, Ljubljana based media have reported.

This decision applies to everyone, whether they are citizens of Slovenia, Macedonia or a member state of the European Union.

The epidemiological situation in Macedonia is extremely difficult. Everyone who comes to Slovenia from that country, even Slovenian citizens, must go into a 14-day quarantine, the Slovenian Interior Ministry said.

The quarantine for Slovenians returning home from other countries was lifted three weeks ago.

Several days ago Bulgaria introduced similar quarantine for Macedonian citizens.
