27.2.2020 | Oznamy a upozornenia pred cestovaním | Koronavírus 2019-nCoV

Bratislava, 27 February 2020 – Based on the conclusions from the meeting of the Security Council of the Slovak Republic today, the Slovak Republic has adopted several measures. At the same time an emergency task force meeting was held at the Ministry of Interior of the Slovak Republic, which will daily evaluate the current situation with regard to the COVID-19 (the coronavirus) disease. 
 

In this context, the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic advises all citizens who plan to travel to foreign countries privately or for business purposes to consider their travels to the countries where the coronavirus is present. The list of the affected countries where the coronavirus disease has been confirmed can be found at the web portal of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic  www.mzv.sk.
 

With regard to this, citizens returning from abroad will also be sent emergency SMS to their mobile phone numbers. 
 

Due to the occurrence of the coronavirus in Europe, the Ministry also recommends that citizens closely monitor their health during their stay abroad and for 14 days afterwards and that if they find that they have respiratory symptoms, they call their doctor without any undue delay. We advise people that if they notice the symptoms, they should contact a doctor per telephone and not to go to the hospital in person to prevent the possible spread of the infection. 
The public can use the information hotlines and email address contacts to have their questions answered by experts.
