ZAGREB – Slovenia will allow a state of emergency declared over the COVID-19 pandemic to expire on Tuesday after eight months, lifting most remaining restrictions, the Health Ministry said.

Cultural and sports events will be able to reopen at 75%-capacity for people who can demonstrate they have been vaccinated, tested negative or recovered from a previous infection.

Some protection measures will remain in force, such as the requirement to wear face masks indoors in public and maintain a safe distance from others, said the state secretary in the health ministry, Franc Vindisar.

On Tuesday Slovenia reported 112 new cases of COVID-19 and two deaths.

Some 45% of Slovenia’s adult population has received one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, while 32% received two shots.
