Rapid testing remains free for certain sectors

Ljubljana – Slovenia was expected to phase out on Monday free rapid testing for all but the most high-risk professions, but the government has now changed course. Employees in healthcare, education, retail and the events industry will continue to have access to free tests.

The changed decree also stipulates that students in the last three grades of primary school and all secondary-school students will have to self-test. The tests will be free, Health Minister Janez Poklukar said after Friday’s government session.
