Description The global economy was hit by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Not only European but also world economies remained closed in the first half of 2020, resulting in increased uncertainty in the economic environment. These changes also significantly affected the Slovak economy. The purpose of the paper is to evaluate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on selected sectors of the Slovak economy from the point of view of regional sectoral employment. Localization analysis is used to evaluate changes. The analysis showed that there was a more significant regional decline in employment in the accommodation and catering services activities of the SK NACE category in all regions of Slovakia except the Trenčín and Banská Bystrica region, although the effect of the sector mix at the Slovak level was negative (the number of employees in this sector declined). The regional decline in employment was also recorded in the SK NACE Industry category, but in this case this development in all regions copied the negative effect of the industrial mix at the level of Slovakia.
