The aim of the law is for ÚVZ to be able to obtain basic information about the cross-border movement of contacts in relation to their arrival from epidemiologically dangerous countries, even without the consent of the participant concerned. The Office will have to destroy this data as soon as the reason has ceased to exist and inform the participant accordingly.

The amendment also includes an amending proposal, which responded to the finding of the Constitutional Court of the Slovak Republic. He assessed the current regulation of isolation and quarantine of persons outside the home environment as deprivation of personal liberty. The amendment removes the vague definition of “quarantine measures”. At the same time, the provisions define the isolation of people with a communicable disease and the quarantine of people diagnosed with a communicable disease in a constitutionally consistent way with the introduction of balancing provisions.

“The enabling provision for the ÚVZ SR and regional public health authorities for issuing generally binding legal regulations on the regulation of measures in the event of a threat to public health is also being amended,” the deputies stated in the joint report of the committees. slovakia roaming reporting
