The designated operator of Slovenia, Pošta Slovenije, wishes to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that the Slovenian Government has extended the formal declaration of a national COVID-19 epidemic for a further 30 days, until mid-December.
Further lockdown restrictions have been introduced throughout Slovenia in order to break the chain of infection, including the closure of all non-essential shops and the suspension of public transport services.
Pošta Slovenije will continue to provide postal services, but will operate with a reduced workforce and subject to the new lockdown restrictions and safety guidelines. The processing and delivery of all types of inbound and outbound mail (letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items) will continue to be affected, and Pošta Slovenije is unable to guarantee compliance with the agreed standards. Therefore, the situation of force majeure previously declared will continue to apply until further notice.
Pošta Slovenije thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding and will send updated information via EmIS once the situation has returned to normal.
