Colour map update: where to travel safe in Europe

(Brussels, 10 May 2021)

Have you noticed that the travel colour codes in Europe are changing? The European map on Covid-19 status is gradually changing from red to orange. That’s the case of Slovakia and the Portuguese archipelago of the Azores, for example. Malta, Madeira, Canary Islands and Mayotte are also orange destinations.

One exception is the North Danish region of Jutland and south-eastern Norway: they are about to turn red again. Please keep in mind that travellers returning from red zones have to undergo to two PCR tests and quarantine themselves for seven days in their return to Belgium.



The map above is published by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) every Thursday in support of the European 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. The maps are based on data reported by EU Member States to The European Surveillance System (TESSy) database by 23:59 every Tuesday.
