Coordinated approach to travel measures

On October 13, European Union Member States agreed on a coordinated approach to travel measures and developed common criteria for mapping risk.

The recommendation aims to help Member States take decisions based on the situation, region by region.

A common colour-coded map broken down by region will be produced weekly by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) with the data provided by Member States on the following criteria:

  • number of cases per 100,000 population in the last 14 days;
  • number of tests per 100,000 population carried out in the last week (testing rate);
  • percentage of positive tests carried out in the last week (test positivity rate).

Member States also agreed to provide clear, comprehensive and timely information to the public on any new measures or requirements, at least 24 hours before the measures come into effect.
