Hotel Thermana Park Lasko will be booked exclusively for participants of the Paralympic WQT. Before checking in, all participants will be provided by medical staff with a quick antigen test on arrival (free of charge). Only participants tested positive for COVID-19 will be sent to the PCR test (also free of charge). Any participant needing a PCR test before returning to his or her country (due to airline request or border patrols) will be offered to be tested during the tournament (110 euros to be paid by the participant).

In case any participant is tested positive with the PCR test, he or she will be isolated in a different hotel (Hotel Zdravilišče Laško located at walking distance). Additional accommodation costs incurred during the isolation will be paid by the participant.

Medical and travel insurance is an obligation for all participants (as stated in section 23 of the prospectus). All participants are requested to ensure that their insurances will cover the costs related to being tested positive by covid-19. LOC will not cover any hospitalization or treatment costs due to COVID-19.

All athletes, coaches and supporting staff must observe the covid-19 protocols that are published at https://www.ittf.com/covid-19/ and can be amended from time to time and adjusted depending on the epidemiological situation of Slovenia and the Savinja region at the time of the event. Regardless the specific measures that are decided, there will not be any exceptions to the compliance of those protocols for any individual who has been vaccinated or has already recovered from the disease.
