a) he/she must remain in domestic isolation with members of the common household and register at the latest when entering Slovakia on the website https://korona.gov.sk/ehranica/. At the earliest on the fifth day, he/she must take the test for Covid-19, or if he/she has no symptoms of the disease, he/she can end the home isolation after 10 days without the test.
