Quarantine measures at the border to remain unchanged until 15 January 2022

November 19, 2021

The Minister of Health has decided to extend the application of the regulation on COVID-19 quarantine measures at the border in line with the recommendation of the Chief Epidemiologist. The regulation will remain in force until 15 January 2022. The reason is the recent severe increase in infections in the country. The Chief Epidemiologist has pointed out that the epidemic is growing fast, the number of people falling severely ill is increasing, and the epidemic is beginning to have adverse effects on the daily operations of the National University Hospital. Around 2% of those diagnosed with COVID-19 need to be hospitalised.
