President Zuzana Čaputová has cancelled her programme and will stay in preventive home quarantine until Friday, June 26.

She made her decision after one of the employees of the President’s Office was in contact with a coronavirus-positive person, her spokesperson Martin Strižinec informed the media.

Čaputová was supposed to meet with her Austrian counterpart Alexander Van der Bellen in her hometown of Pezinok today.

Later on June 24, her COVID-19 test was negative. The employee of the President’s Office who was in contact with the coronavirus-positive person also tested negative.

The president is staying in quarantine, though, and her programme is cancelled until the second test she plans to take in the coming days is negative too, Strižinec reported.
