Malta has been removed from Slovenia’s “green list”, the list of countries deemed safe for travel by Slovenian nationals amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The island has been pushed to the yellow list and has not been placed on the red list yet. The red list is made up of countries with a high rate of infection and includes countries like China and Belgium.
Arrivals from Malta to Slovenia will now have to undergo a mandatory 14-day quarantine.
The announcement was made by the Slovenian government as a few other countries, like the Czech Republic, were also bumped off the green list amid rising COVID-19 numbers in their respective countries.
It also comes after Malta was deemed unsafe for travel by various nations in recent days, including Ireland and Latvia, and America’s CDC deemed Malta as “high risk” and urged its citizens to avoid non-essential travel to the island.
