BRATISLAVA, Slovakia — Slovakia is easing its border restrictions, allowing travel to 16 more European countries.
Prime Minister Igor Matovic said Tuesday that the countries are Germany, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Slovenia, Croatia, Bulgaria, Greece, Cyprus, Malta, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Norway, Denmark and Iceland.
Matovic said the countries are considered safe for Slovak travelers and their citizens don’t pose a threat for Slovakia.
Last week, Slovakia reopened its borders with neighboring Czech Republic, Austria and Hungary.
Slovakia has not been hit as hard by the pandemic as some other European countries. It says 1,531 people have tested positive for the coronavirus and 28 have died.
