Maps in support of the Council Recommendation on a coordinated approach to travel measures in the EU

These maps are published by ECDC every Thursday in support of the Council Recommendation on a coordinated approach to the restriction of free movement in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which was adopted by EU Member States on 13 October 2020 and amended on 28 January 2021 and 14 June 2021. The maps are based on data reported by EU Member States to The European Surveillance System (TESSy) database by 23:59 every Tuesday.

Areas are marked in the following colours (note that as of 17 June 2021, regions are classified according to the criteria in the latest amendment of the Council Recommendation):

  • Green:
    • if the 14-day notification rate is less than 50 and the test positivity rate is less than 4%; or
    • if the 14-day notification rate is less than 75 and the test positivity rate less than 1%
  • Orange:
    • if the 14-day notification rate is less than 50 and the test positivity rate is 4% or more; or
    • the 14-day notification rate is 50 or more and less than 75 and the test positivity rate is 1% or more; or
    • the 14-day notification rate is between 75 and 200 and the test positivity rate is less than 4%
  • Red:
    • if the 14-day cumulative COVID-19 case notification rate ranges from 75 to 200 and the test positivity rate of tests for COVID-19 infection is 4% or more, or
    • if the 14-day cumulative COVID-19 case notification rate is more than 200 but less than 500
  • Dark red:
    • if the 14-day cumulative COVID-19 case notification rate is 500 or more
