COVID tests not needed in most districts

People in the majority of Slovak districts will no longer need to have negative COVID-19 tests when going out during most of the day. The country is divided as of this week into medium red and light red zones but no black zone, state authorities reported on Monday.
However, negative COVID-19 tests will still be needed during the time of curfew between 9 P.M.-1 A.M. It will be possible to apply also individual exemptions from the rules, for instance for those who overcame COVID-19 in less than 180 days.
A few Slovak districts still remain dark red and these will see a more stringent curfew between 5 P.M.-1 A.M. Also, negative COVID-19 tests, not older than 7 days, or individual exemptions will still be needed to access indoor facilities in the dark-red zones.
As of Monday, 60 districts are in medium red zone, including the cities of Banska Bystrica, Bratislava, Kosice, Presov, Trnava and Zilina.
Nine districts are in the light red zone and 10 districts in the dark red zone, the latter including also the city of Trencin.
