Covid-19: restrictions remain unchanged in Europe except in Italy

confinementWhile Italy is easing the restrictions, stricter sanitary measures have been implemented in several European countries. As of 15 February 2021, anyone flying to the United Kingdom is required to present a negative PCR test performed within 72 hours prior to the flight. The traveller will also be required to undergo a mandatory 10-day quarantine and present two negative PCR tests on the second and eighth day of lockdown.

If tested positive, an additional analysis is required in order to check the presence of one of the Covid-19 variants. In this case also, another fourteen days of quarantine are required.

People coming from high-risk countries will be directed to hotels and placed under surveillance for ten days.

In Germany, the lockdown which was due to end on 14 February, will be extended until the end of the month. In Greece, a strict lockdown has been imposed from 11-28 February.

The lockdown will probably be maintained until mid-March in Portugal where a peak of 16 500 new cases was reported on 28 January 2021. In France, the borders with non-EU countries have been closed since 31 January.
