No major violations of stricter movement rules


There are a few exceptions to the rule, allowing Slovenians to go to another municipality to go to work, do farm work, provide assistance to persons in need of care, and to access emergency services, pharmacies, diplomatic missions and judicial authorities.

In controlling compliance with the new restrictions, the police apply common sense as long as people respect safety measures.

However, those who break the rules for negligence or ignorance are told to return to their home municipality.

The police have no powers to carry out procedures related to violations of the contagious diseases law, so in case of suspected violation, they notify health inspectors.

On Monday alone, as many as 107 cases were referred to the health inspection service, and in 85 cases, the police warned people of inappropriate conduct.

The government decree on the new restrictions does not mention the employer's note proving a person has to move to another municipality for work.

But the police say any note proving the person's intended movements makes checking the movement is justified easier.

In Ljubljana, the police and health inspectors are assisted by city wardens, firefighters, mountain rescuers and Civil Protection members in controlling compliance, the Ljubljana municipality said.

City wardens and health inspectors usually monitor areas around chemists, primary schools, kindergartens, petrol stations, playgrounds, parks and similar public areas.
