Anti-pandemic measures were lifted as of March 14. The capacity restrictions at mass events were cancelled and limits on opening hours were scrapped too.

However, it is still obligatory to wear FFP2 respirator masks, but news anchors are exempt from this.

PCR testing after flying to Slovakia from at-risk countries is no longer required.

There is no need to show proof of vaccination, recovery from Covid or a negative test result when entering a shop or attending mass events. Shops are open to everyone, without capacity restrictions or limitations on their opening hours.

Respirator still obligatory

The obligation to wear an FFP2 respirator inside and at mass events still remains.

However, several people are exempt from this rule, including people who speak at press conferences or participants in news and other media programmes. However, journalists who participate in press conferences as a part of their job must cover their noses and mouths.
