Arrival to Slovenia: COVID-19 related information
How does the isolation look like?

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)


  1. Do not leave home (do not leave your home, do not go to the shop or other establishments, do not use public transport or taxi).
  2. Avoid contact with others and do not accept visits.
  3. During isolation, distract yourself with pleasant activities. You can shorten your time with exercises for physical activity, cooking, reading, online learning, watching movies, etc.
  4. Despite isolation, stay connected to other people, especially if you live alone. Get the support of friends, family and others. Try to stay in touch with them by phone, mail or online. Let them know you want to stay connected and let this become your daily routine. This is important for your mental well-being.

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.

  1. Try to do as much as possible through websites.
  2. People should pay attention to hygiene. Persons living with you in a joint household are not deprived of their freedom of movement.


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.


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:


  1. Wash your hands often with soap and water. If water and soap are not available, use a dedicated hand sanitizer to disinfect your hands.
  2. Do not touch the face with dirty / unwashed hands.
  4. Use your own cutlery, hygiene items, laundry and towels and do not share them with others.
  5. After using personal and hygiene items, clean them and store them separately from others.


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:

  • if person has been without fever for the last 24 hours and 24 hours have passed since the remission of symptoms and signs of the disease (if illness or fever lasts longer, isolation is prolonged)

  • on the day 7, the person performs a rapid antigen test (RAT) at an authorized testing provider, which must be negative. In case RAT is positive, the person stays in isolation and can repeat the test until the end of the day 10. After this time, the isolation ends even without RAT.

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.

Monitor the situation in Slovenia and follow the measures and instructions of experts (competent institutions).
