Slovakian Prime Minister, Eduard Heger, announced today (Feb 16) that Slovakia will now be following neighbour Czech Republic and start ending all Covid measures Feb 28th.
Heger said the proposal came “from a constellation of experts” and the government will repeal all measures “as soon as possible,” according to Novinky.cz, the most visited online news magazine in the Czech Republic.
What will be abolished first is also being discussed today (Feb 16) by Heger’s Cabinet, but all remaining Covid measures are set to be lifted by the end of March.
“We expect that after this date [the end of March] we will return to life as we knew it before the pandemic,” Heger said.
Mandates likely to be removed Feb 28th include the need to show vaccine or immunity status to enter restaurants and various other public spaces, ending visitor capacity limits for events such as concerts and sporting events, and ending the need for pupils to home quarantine.
Other European countries we have reported on so far that are currently turning in that direction include: England , Ireland , Denmark , Sweden, Finland, Norway and Switzerland.
