Current COVID-19 measures

April release

From 8 February 2021, a curfew applies until the appeal, but no later than the end of the state of emergency, ie on 28 May 2021.

The relaxation, as well as the tightening of measures, began to be controlled by the COVID automat. The first level of warning currently applies to the Liptovský Mikuláš district. The second level of warning for the Ružomberok district.

Based on this decision, the natural beauties of Liptov can also be visited by residents of other districts without test. Children under 15 and seniors over 65 do not need the test either. You can go to nature between 1:00 – 21:00. Entry into black districts only with a negative test not older than 7 days.
