Slovakia Is Easing Its Tight Lockdown

BRATISLAVA, Slovakia — Slovakia is easing its tight lockdown amid a decline in new coronavirus infections.

Starting Monday all stores and services will be allowed to reopen at reduced capacity for people with a negative coronavirus test.

Religious services may resume, and hotels, zoos, botanical parks and libraries can reopen.

Groups of up to six people may exercise and play sports together outdoors.

New coronavirus infections and hospitalizations have been declining since early March.

The nation of 5.4 million has registered over 376,000 confirmed cases with 11,172 deaths.

Prime Minister Eduard Heger has said people still need to be cautious and abide by the restrictions that will remain in place, because “we haven’t won yet.”
