BRATISLAVA (dpa-AFX) – In Slovakia, a nocturnal ban on going out expired on Monday. The ban was imposed from mid-December to slow the spread of the coronavirus and was in effect from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Schools across Slovakia were also allowed to hold face-to-face classes again from Monday. However, the youngest children also have to wear at least mouth and nose protection during class, and in regions more severely affected by Covid-19, an FFP2 mask.
Gatherings of more than six people from different households remained prohibited. The opposition parties accused the four-party government of not wanting to restrict the pandemic, but rather anti-government protests. For a week now, restaurants and other catering establishments have been able to host guests in their interiors again. However, access is only allowed to people who have overcome Covid-19 or are vaccinated against it.
The details of the relaxation for the cultural sector that were to take effect on that day had not yet been clarified on Monday lunchtime. The conservative culture minister Natalia Milanova announced at the weekend that the decision on this would probably be made later in the day. Milanova’s plans announced on Friday had been heavily criticized by organizers. The Slovak National Theater in Bratislava announced that if no more than 50 people were admitted despite the mandatory control of vaccination records, it was not worth opening the door at all. /Ct/DP/eas
