The outbreak of COVID-19 presents us with a challenge that will reshape the world as we know it, and to a far bigger extent than we could have ever imagined.
Its far-ranging consequences will not only affect our health and normal lives but will also disrupt the global economy, systems of governance and our societies as a whole. Many of its implications will only become apparent in the months to come.
Republic of Slovenia is closely monitoring the developments around the world and in the neighbouring countries and is taking decisive steps to contain the spread of coronavirus. Several strict measures to curb the spread of infections in our country have been adopted.
Current information about the situation in Slovenia and further instructions are available on the Coronavirus disease COVID-19 website.
