When you find out about your infection,
you should inform your contacts in the last two days before the onset of symptoms that they have been in contact with a person positive for SARS-CoV-2.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR PERSONS EXPOSED TO INFECTION WITH THE NEW CORONAVIRUS
We are trying to contain the spread of new coronavirus infections by the use of entry restrictions and other measures at the borders of Slovenia. Thus, we wish to ensure the maximum safety of the national population and travelers to the country.
Before your arrival to Slovenia, please check regularly updated information about border crossing on the Government website.

In case you are required to self-isolate for 7 days, please follow the content of the isolation decision and the following instructions (official instruction in English)
STAY AT HOME
People who live with you in the same household should follow the recommendations of social distancing. Social distancing means that people living with you in the same household should follow the instructions not to socialize unnecessarily with people outside the common household, keep a distance of 1.5 m, go to the store as little as possible and when there are not many people.
MONITOR YOUR HEALTH
Monitor your health using the Health Monitor Table. If you develop signs of a respiratory infection (eg. colds, cough, fever, shortness of breath) or other symptoms listed in the Health Monitoring Table during this period, call your personal or emergency physician for further follow-up instructions. Tell your doctor that you are in quarantine. List of doctors available here.
Healthcare professionals will give you instructions on whether a visit to the doctor is necessary. You will also receive additional instructions such as how to travel, how to install a mask, when to report to a medical institution, which entrance to use, etc. In case you have to travel to the health center entry point on your own, do not use public transport, car sharing or taxi.
PROVISION OF BASIC LIVING NEEDS
For the provision of basic groceries and hygiene supplies, you can turn to student tutors, or friends, so they can provide them for you and deliver them to your home. When delivering, they should not enter your home, but leave the supplies in front of the front door and inform you about it on the intercom or telephone.
We recommend using alternative shopping methods such as online sales and delivery in a secure way, with the delivery person not entering your home and delivering the package to your front door.
Here are some useful food / grocery delivery possiblities:
Pharmacy deliveries: Lekarna Ljubljana / Pharmacy Ljubljana, Gorenjske lekarne / Gorenjska pharmacies, Lekarna Soča / Pharmacy Soča, Prva lekarna (in Slovene)

Isolation lasts at least 7 days from the onset of illness and a person recovering from an asymptomatic infection, 7 days after a positive test for SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Isolation is expected to end after 7 days if two conditions are met:
Isolation can also be extended if the course of illness is more severe, requires hospitalization, and in the case of an immune disorder. The duration of the isolation is determined by your personal or treating physician. For a more detailed explanation, please check official instruction.
