P-003752/2020/rev.1
Priority question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Biljana Borzan (S&D), Valter Flego (Renew)
 Subject: Repatriation of tourists infected with COVID-19

The restrictions on free movement in the EU are being relaxed and tourism is picking up. Therefore, it is reasonable to assume that Member States will encounter cases of tourists from other countries being infected with COVID-19. To ensure a European response to the challenge, the Commission should provide guidance to Member State authorities as soon as possible.

1. Should host Member States allow EU citizens, and tourists in general, who have tested positive for COVID-19, or are in quarantine due to contact with infected persons, to leave the country before their isolation or quarantine ends?

2. Or should they be barred from returning across national borders until their isolation or quarantine ends and their test results are negative?

3. Is the Commission preparing guidelines for these and similar situations?
