Covid pass mandatory at gatherings of over 50 persons

Ljubljana – A Covid pass will be required at gatherings of over 50 people, be it organised public events or public indoor or outdoor gatherings, the government decided on Thursday. This means participants will need to be vaccinated, tested or have proof of recovery.

The changes to the decree on temporary restrictions to public gatherings will step into force a day after being published in the Official Gazette.

So far, the Covid pass was required for events with up to 100 participants and at indoor public events regardless of the number of participants.

The government also changed today the rules for exceptions to the quarantine rule following a risky contact for vaccinated persons. Under the new rules, a person vaccinated with AstraZeneca will not be ordered to quarantine after a risky contact if they received the second shot at least 15 days earlier. So far, it was 21 days.

Existing border restrictions were also extended today.
