Instead of updating the list of green and red countries, the Health Ministry and the Public Health Authority will prepare a list of risky regions within countries.

Health Minister Marek Krajčí (OĽaNO) noted during an August 13 press conference that some countries may be considered safe but not some of their regions anymore.

The list of risky regions and countries will be updated every two weeks.

Starting on September 1, people returning from risky countries will have to undergo a 10-day self-isolation.
