COVID-19 & Slovenia: Maribor Closes All Bars, Restaurants

Slovenia’s second largest city Maribor plans to close bars, restaurants and establishments such as hair salons and flower shops to slow the spread of coronavirus.

“We want Maribor and its surroundings to remain an area with a relatively slow spreading of the epidemic,” Mayor Saša Arsenović said on Saturday.

All such establishments will be closed unless they can arrange contactless delivery and service of food, which could mean fast food stalls would be exempted.

Arsenović said shops should consider closing as well, except for petrol stations, pharmacies and grocery stores.

The mayor’s order is expected to take effect on Sunday, when the detailed rules will be announced. The order may include fines for violators.

The move comes after Prime Minister Janez Janša has called on local communities to be proactive in curbing the epidemic, saying that people are still too careless and that additional restrictions may be imposed.
