The rules relating to the entry of people to Slovakia who have been inoculated with only one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine were adjusted as of Monday. On the first day after their return, they will be able to be tested with a PCR test and, if the result is negative, quarantine will be terminated. "This transitional provision will not apply to people who have been vaccinated after July 9, that is after the current decree came into force. In their case, too short a time has elapsed for them to develop at least a minimum level of protective antibodies," said spokeswoman for the Public Health Office (UVZ) Dáša Račková. Home quarantine is required for these persons, and they can take a COVID-19 test on the fifth day at the earliest. If the test result is negative, the quarantine will be terminated.
The Public Health Office (ÚVZ) thus responded to the suspension of the decree by the Constitutional Court and the restoration of the validity and effectiveness of the ÚVZ decree of June, which distinguishes countries according to the travel traffic lights into green, red and black in terms of quarantine measures upon entry into Slovakia.
