US and Canada, taken off Romania’s quarantine list

Romania’s government has amended its travel quarantine list on Sunday and has taken off the US and Canada after a drop in Covid-19 cases within the two countries, according to universul.net.

Most countries remain on the list which is updated every week. The list includes Moldova, Israel, Bulgaria and the Maldives which are all popular holiday destinations for Romanians.

However, Germany, Greece, Portugal and Switzerland are not on the list which comprises 51 countries.

Travellers arriving from countries that are on the list need to self-quarantine for 14 days at home or at a stated location. If they have had a COVID-19 test up to 72 hours prior to arrival, self-isolation is reduced to 10 days.

Travellers who have had two vaccines or those who have had Covid-19 in the past 90 days and have a test showing they have antibodies can skip quarantine.

The National Center for Disease Supervision and Control said it required people to quarantine due to high numbers of infections in Romania and abroad, as potentially infected people travelling back to the country will generate constant pressure on the local authorities and the healthcare system’s ability to manage.
