Through the approval of a proposal for a Council Recommendation on a coordinated approach to the restriction of free movement
The Commission intends to unify the Member States and the Schengen Area associated countries in the fight against the pandemic.
the EU Commissioner for Home Affairs, Ylva Johansson said that since March, the Commission has developed and delivered a solid foundation of internal and external border control recommendations for the Member States to follow.
Today’s measures build on this track record so that we can fully benefit from our Schengen area. That is why we want a clear ‘green, orange, red’ system and not a kaleidoscope of individual measures — Ylva Johansson
There is a proposal which lays out four key areas where the Member States should work closer together.
In addition to the common criteria and thresholds for the Member States when deciding whether to introduce travel restriction
The Commission wants to create a common mapping of the infection levels in the member states according to the colours on which they will agree.
It also intends to establish a common framework for measures applied to travellers from high-risk areas and clear and timely information is made available to the public about any restrictions.
01:29 – Evaluation Criteria and Colour Code System
The first key area in which more collaboration is required by the member states, according to the Commission, is the criteria on the threshold of infection levels for the introduction of restrictions.
The Commission proposes that the Member States should consider the following when evaluating a country’s epidemiological situation
· Number of new Coronavirus cases per 100,000 people in the last two weeks prior to the evaluation
· Number of COVID-19 tests carried out per 100 000 people during a seven-day period
· Share of positive tests from the total of tests carried out in a seven-day period
03:06 – Member States Should not Refuse Travellers from High-Risk Areas
The Commission also proposes that the Member States should no longer turn back travellers from high-risk zones.
It also means that travellers from the USA can soon travel to Europe.
03:52 – Clear and timely information made available to the public
Finally, the Commission proposes that the Member states should notify on the intended changes at least a week before they become effective, and also provide information to the reOPEN EU web platform,
