People coming to Slovenia from other EU member states are no longer required to be isolated for at least seven days, as they have been since early April, the government said in a statement on Thursday.

Austrians stormed shopping malls, Spaniards filled the streets after 49 days of isolation
The countdown has begun until the great release, announced by the authorities on May 15. Plans are being made about the operation of restaurants, hotels, rules have been imposed for the reopening of hair salons. The somewhat normal life is enjoyed by the citizens of other European states. The images of Austrians rushing into shops, or those of Spaniards enjoying sports and walks are as optimistic as they are disturbing. Authorities warn that the danger has not passed.
Since 1 May, Austria has further relaxed measures imposed in the context of the coronavirus pandemic and allowed the reopening of hairdressing salons, larger shops and shopping malls. And the images speak for themselves about the impatience with which people have been waiting for this relaxation. Queues formed in front of clothing stores, sidewalks were crowded, and parks and markets became promenades again.
Austria will further relax its containment measures from May 15, when restaurants and cafes will be reopened and religious services will be able to resume, Chancellor Sebastian Kurz was quoted as saying by Reuters on Tuesday.
Relaxation also is in Spain, one of the hardest-hit countries in terms of deaths due to the new coronavirus. Over the weekend, in Barcelona, runners and cyclists littered the streets near the beach, where surfers enjoyed the waves.
In Madrid, cyclists and young people on skateboards walked the boulevards, crossing police lanes trying to prevent congestion. Spain was one of the countries hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic and imposed strict containment measures in March. Sports and recreational activities have been banned in an attempt to stop the spread of coronavirus.
Useful tips to get easier through self-isolation
In recent weeks, we all have had to step far beyond the boundaries of our comfort zone. The inability to go out, anxiety for oneself and loved ones, a change in habits, the uncertainty of the future - all these factors cause stress.
In such a difficult and stressful situation, it is important to eat right, not to forget about physical activity and monitor your emotional state.
Our mood is influenced by a lot of factors. One of them is the surrounding colors. It is very important to have foods of all colors in the diet: for example, red tomatoes, orange oranges, yellow apples, green lettuce and parsley, purple eggplant and basil. This diversity also allows you to increase the amount of antioxidants, vitamins and trace elements in the diet, and it is also very useful for our microbiota.
Plan the menu for the next 3-4 days and write a list of everything you need. If you have a plan, then there will definitely be much less harmful goodies in your basket.
You eat food several times a day. Accordingly, calories, together with protein-fats-carbohydrates, enter your body properly. And if you do not spend them just as well, then they will begin to settle in the form of fat deposits on the stomach, hips and buttocks. Being in isolation and not being able to go through at least 10 thousand steps, you need to do exercises every day.
The state of routine in ordinary life a person withstands in many respects due to the potential ability to get out of it. He knows that one day there will come a day off, a holiday or a trip to a restaurant. Even for those people who have not left their homes for years, such a theoretical possibility exists and makes life bearable.
In a changing situation, it is important to carry out all the daily activities that a person is used to. Remain in the present without thinking about the future, because no one can know anything about it.
Greece has opened its borders without a mandatory quarantine only for EU citizens
Greece has opened its borders and started receiving EU citizens without a mandatory quarantine after arrival starting Monday at 11:00 local time, Bulgarian police said. The opening took place an hour earlier than initially announced, reports BTA from the Kulata crossing point between Bulgaria and Greece.
The Greek border authorities distribute to persons entering Greece forms to be filled in with the full name of the person and the destination of the journey. Coronavirus tests are performed randomly. If the test is positive, the person will be quarantined for 14 days.
A long line of vehicles waiting to cross the border formed early Monday morning, and by noon the queue was several kilometres long. The cars waiting at Kulata came from Bulgaria, Romania, Germany and other European countries, according to BTA.
Greece also reopened its two major airports, Athens and Thessaloniki, on Monday, while regional airports are set to reopen on July 1.
As at the land borders, random tests for COVID-19 will be conducted at Athens and Thessaloniki airports by June 30. "Those who will be tested will have to wait for the result - that is, one day - in a hotel of their choice. If someone is tested positive, he will remain in quarantine for 14 days, "Greek government spokesman Stelios Petsas was quoted as saying in a press briefing on Monday.
Greek authorities also reopened all museums in the country on Monday, after visitors were allowed to visit only a few archaeological sites in late May. Visitors and leisure parks, hot springs, gyms and other places related to the tourist season have also been waiting for their visitors since Monday.
There's a test that tells you if you're immune to Covid-19
Researchers at Oxford have made an important discovery: they have launched a test that can identify, in just 20 minutes, whether or not a person has antibodies to Covid-19. Those who find out they are immune to coronavirus can return to work and resume their lives. The British government has already ordered 50 million tests that will be ready by June and says it is vital to saving the economy.
A test costs 10 pounds and is done through a small sting that takes a drop of blood. It works on the principle of pregnancy test: if after 20 minutes two lines appear, it means that there are antibodies to Covid-19. One line shows that the person is either vulnerable or the test has failed.
The test was developed by researchers at Oxford in collaboration with a firm backed by the British government. It wants to produce 1 million tests per week, by summer, and from next year to reach a production capacity of 50 million tests. The plan is for people to take pictures of the test result and send them to a central unit, where they will be entered into a database. Those who are immune to the virus will be able to return to work and thus the country's economy would have a chance.
In the United Kingdom, Prime Minister Boris Johnson, recovered from a serious infection with the new coronavirus, resumes his activity on Monday.
