Police in Slovakia Are Bolstering Checks at the Country’s Borders

BRATISLAVA, Slovakia — Police in Slovakia are bolstering checks at the country's borders during the Easter holidays to enforce pandemic-related travel restrictions.

Authorities said Friday that “maximum numbers” of police officers have been joined by military personnel at all border crossings with neighboring European Union members, including Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland.

Police say the officers are checking every person entering the country. Slovakia requires people arriving in the country from abroad to quarantine.

Law enforcement agencies also are increasing travel checks between Slovakia's counties to enforce tight restrictions on movement within the country.

At the same time, the government decided to allow people to visit churches during Easter, although religious services are banned in the predominantly Roman Catholic country.

In the neighboring Czech Republic, the government is allowing people to attend Easter services after 9 p.m., which is the time an overnight curfew begins to curb coronavirus infections.
