In mid-November 2020, more precisely between November 13 and 16, 2020, independent experts from various fields connected as members of the civil initiatives COVID-19 Tracker Slovenia and Young Doctors (Mladi zdravniki) conducted a survey entitled "How do you take care of yourself and others?". The aim of the survey was to find out to what extent the people of Slovenia followed the recommendations to limit the epidemic of COVID-19. Respondents reported their behaviour during past seven days, that is, during the second week of November 2020. The online questionnaire, which was distributed on social networks, including on the so-called conspiratorial Facebook groups where COVID-19 sceptics gathered, etc., was answered by 5,165 people. Based on the data, the differences in adherence to recommendations between different regions were calculated.
