The Slovenian government has decided that people attending public cultural events will have to wear face masks as of Monday (Aug 16), with the exception of performers, local media reported. There are no changes regarding restrictions of public gatherings, while stricter requirements for testing of employees in certain activities are to be introduced soon, according to a report by The Slovenia Times.

Under the decree that will be in force until August 22, the recovered-vaccinated-tested (PCT) rule remains in force for public events and gatherings in enclosed spaces and for outdoor events for more than 100 people. As for transport, the government decided on Friday evening that taxi drivers and operators of cable lifts will need to meet the PCT rule, while PCR test will be valid for 72 hours and rapid antigen tests for 48 hours.

Meanwhile, employees in nine service activities will need to produce as of August 23 a negative PCR test not older than 72 hours or a rapid antigen test not older than 48 hours, if they have not been va ccinated or recovered from COVID-19. Until next Sunday, employees in these nine service activities are required to get tested once a week.

The government said that the changes had been adopted "considering the fast increase in infections with the delta strain in the EU member states."
