Published guidance and reports for COVID-19. Preparedness and response for Points of Entry and transport operators.

Interim advice for preparedness and response to cases of COVID-19 at points of entry in the European Union (EU)/EEA Member States (MS)

This interim advice was prepared after a request from the European Commission's Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety (DG SANTE).
An ad-hoc working group was established with members from the EU HEALTHY GATEWAYS joint action consortium.

The scope of the advice provided in this document is to assist public health authorities in developing their short-term and long-term national and local preparedness plans. It further contains useful advice for the air and the maritime transport sectors.

This first version of advice addresses issues of air and maritime transportation. There are also rail connections between China and Europe. The working group will address issues for ground crossings in the next version of the advice.
