As Covid creeps up again across Europe, many countries are reimposing travel restrictions on neighbours. As this happens, the map of Europe is being color-coded red, green and yellow. Travelers on high-risk red lists are being shut out again, either with total travel bans or quarantines. Those on green lists meantime have a green light to travel. A sign of the times, Norway for example no longer ranks any zones as green in Europe or beyond. The most spectacular and controversial return to shutdown EU borders came this week with Hungary’s decision to add all countries to its red list. Barely two months after reopening to Schengen travelers, it’s defying the bloc’s recommendations on internal borders and travel freedoms. The measures will stay in place at least until October 1. Links to government restrictions are included in the country headings. See useful details on the Reopen Europe website too. Belgium in early August added many parts of Romania, France and Spain to its red list. That means a total ban on non-essential travel to those places. Travelers returning must both quarantine and test on return. Finland too has a red, green, yellow system, updated on August 24. Latvia’s red list was super-sized in past days. The Dutch government zones countries for Covid as Yellow (OK) and Orange (not ok, quarantine required). “Foreign travellers from countries where the health risks are similar to or lower than in the Netherlands can enter for tourism,” it says. Norway has a red, green, yellow Covid map. Currently no country is marked as a restriction-free green zone. Many more Europeans were added to the “high transmission” risk red list on August 29. Slovenia too has a color-coded system with green, yellow and red lists. The U. K. red list comes in the form of quarantine for a growing number of countries. The Czech Republic and Switzerland are among the latest Europeans to join others like France, Croatia and Austria who no longer enjoy a quarantine-free travel corridor with England. Showing the nation’s quarantine policy disarray, Scotland and Wales are imposing quarantine on Greece and Portugal–both of which remain on England and Ireland’s corridor lists.
