The number of orange districts (alert) in the COVID-automaton grew from 14 to 23 as of Monday. The remaining 56 Slovak districts are green (monitoring). The orange districts are as follows: Bánovce nad Bebravou, Bardejov, Brezno, Bytča, Dolný Kubín, Gelnica, Ilava, Kežmarok, Košice I-IV, Košice-okolie, Kysucké Nové Mesto, Nové Mesto nad Váhom, Nové Zámky, Poprad, Rožňava, Trebišov, Trenčín, Tvrdošín, Vranov nad Topľou and Žiar nad Hronom.
In green districts, fully vaccinated people can engage in most activities without any restrictions, while those who have not been vaccinated or recently tested negative for COVID-19 must expect slight restrictions. Wearing face masks remains mandatory indoors in both green and orange districts.
In orange districts, stricter conditions apply for mass events, restaurants, fitness and wellness centres, weddings and funerals. The number of people allowed to attend will depend on the entry rules chosen by their organisers.
Establishment owners and mass event organisers will decide to whom they will grant access. There are three variants to choose from - access for fully vaccinated people only, OTP (only for the vaccinated, negatively tested and those who have overcome COVID-19) and the so-called base mode, meaning all customers/visitors.
