The majority of Slovakia will enjoy more relaxed anti-pandemic measures from next Monday, May 31.

As many as 24 districts will switch to the yellow tier, where the regime will be the most relaxed. This includes all districts of the capital, Bratislava.

Given the measures in the Covid automat alert system, this means that people can wear masks both inside and outside (but respirators are still recommended for interiors and public transport). At the same time, it will be possible to eat inside the restaurant.

For mass events with a seated audience, the limit for events held inside is set to 50 percent of the capacity, with a cap at 250 people, while outside it increases to 75 percent of the capacity, but no more than 500 people. For a standing audience, the limits are 100 people inside and 250 outside. For weddings, funerals, and parties, the limits are 100 people inside and 250 outside.
