Updated on August 20, after the official decision by the Slovenian government was made public: in order to make things easier for their nationals currently vacationing in Croatia, Slovenia has decided to extend the deadline for the return to Slovenia until Monday. Slovenians who own real-estate and boats in Croatia are given an extra 48 hours, so they can take care of their property before leaving Croatia without self-isolating upon return. 

Brdo pri Kranju, 19 August, 2020 – Slovenia plans to put Croatia on red list of countries from which travellers must undergo a 14-day quarantine, reports STA, the Slovenian Press Agency.

Those already in Croatia have until the end of the week to avoid quarantine, those travelling there as of Friday will have to quarantine, government spokesman Jelko Kacin said on Wednesday.

The decision to red-list Croatia will formally be made at Thursday’s cabinet session and published in the Official Gazette the same day.

“Fact is that the situation in Croatia is deteriorating dramatically. Data on infections show that the situation is really bad,” Kacin said after the government meet epidemiologists to discuss the way forward.

He said Croatia was likely to today exceed 40 new cases per 100,000 inhabitants in over a 14-day period, the threshold in Slovenia for putting countries on the red list.
