Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, March 13, 2020 – As of Friday, people who live in Croatia and work in the Slovenian region of Bela Krajina will no longer be able to migrate across the border on a daily basis because that Slovenian region has been declared a high coronavirus risk region, Karlovac County head Damir Jelić said on Thursday.

Jelić told a news conference that several hundred Croatian nationals who were expected to go to work to that southeast Slovenian region near the border with Croatia on Friday had to decide if they would take more of their possessions and stay in Slovenia for at least two weeks or return from work to Croatia and undergo medical supervision for early detection of possible coronavirus infection.

This means that the practice of daily cross-border migration for work from the said areas will not be possible and that those who return to Croatia will have to self-isolate at home for two weeks and will not be able to leave the country during that period, Jelić said, adding this decision by the county civil protection team was in line with recommendations by the national civil protection team.
