Ukraine put the Czech Republic on the list of countries with a high risk of COVID-19 infection, as people returning from the Czech Republic must undergo a 14-day-long quarantine.
Apart from the Czech Republic, the so-called “red list” includes Albania, Bulgaria, China, Poland, France, Georgia, Germany, Hungary, Lithuania, Montenegro, and Russia.
The quarantine obligation applies to anyone who stayed in the Czech Republic during the 14 days prior to them crossing the Ukrainian border.
There are exceptions to the quarantine obligation for those entering from the Czech Republic. Quarantine will not apply to, among others, children under 12 years of age, people who transit Ukraine for no more than 48 hours, drivers and crew members of lorries, air and sea crews, river ships, train and locomotive crews and drivers of regular scheduled buses.
Cultural activists invited by cultural institutions with one accompanying person, NATO instructors and employees of diplomatic missions and consulates are also not covered by the quarantine.
According to the new regulations, the condition for permission to end the quarantine is the receipt of a negative coronavirus test, carried out no later than 48 hours after entering Ukraine.

The Slovenian government has reinstated the Czech Republic, with the exception of the Moravian-Silesian region, on the green list of epidemiologically safe countries, with the decision taking effect on Tuesday.
In announcing the news, the government’s Communication Office said the decision was made following a briefing on the situation of Covid-19 in the two countries by the National Institute of Public Health.
The Czech Republic was placed on the so-called yellow list with Croatia on Saturday. The Moravian-Silesian region in the east of the Czech Republic remains on the yellow list.

Slovenian citizens and foreigners residing permanently or temporarily in Slovenia from members of the EU yellow zone or the Schengen area are not quarantined under certain conditions.
This includes proving that they own property or a vessel there, or producing an original accommodation invoice.
If they are unable to prove this, they are considered to be arriving in Slovenia from a high-risk country and subject to a two-week quarantine.
Slovenian citizens and foreigners with permanent or temporary residence in Slovenia from members of the EU green list or the Schengen area are not quarantined.
Persons who have a temporary or permanent residence in these countries are free to enter Slovenia without any restrictions or quarantine either.
