"We are today finishing adjusting the rules, the change in the self-isolation rule exceptions for people who have recovered from the COVID disease. The exceptions will state that people who have recovered from the COVID infection should not self-isolate for three months after high-risk contact," the minister told a press conference on Friday.

"If specialists manage to complete everything today and everything will be signed and published, then it might be so that such rules would come into force as early as tomorrow," the minister said.

The rules, he said, would initially be in force with certain exceptions as the conclusion from a group of medical experts on the possibility to apply to medics and staff members of care and other high-risk establishments. The conclusion is expected on Monday.
