At the same time, it was recommended not to organize any mass events.

"We will ban mass events with certain exceptions, such as marriage, funeral, baptism, public authority meetings, or if the organizer of such an event ensures that all participants have a negative RT-PCR test not older than 12 hours and report the event to the regional authority. This measure affects sports, cultural, corporate and church events, "said Ján Mikas, Chief Hygienist of the Slovak Republic, after the meeting of the Central Crisis Unity.
