    Relaxation of restrictions:

    The government is introducing a four-stage easing of restrictions. Partial lifting of restrictions for the first phase started on 22 April, and includes the reopening of shops up to the size of 300 square meters, sporting grounds, open air markets and car dealerships. The second and third stage have been merged: in the second stage authorities aimed for short-term accommodation, outdoor tourist attractions and taxi services to resume their operations. The third stage was to take place from early June and see the reopening of most shops, schools, and entertainment centres (theatres, cinemas, shopping malls). On 6 May, larger shops, hotels, hairdressers, and outdoor service at restaurants resumed. The next stage is likely to be launched on, or after 20 May, and will involve the reopening of shopping malls, theatres and cinemas. The final stage (date unknown for now) should include the reopening of schools and kindergartens, and should allow mass public and sporting events. As part of their relaxation of restrictions plan, Slovak authorities on 25 April lifted a quarantine on one of five Roma settlements locked down earlier in the month.
