The EU will apply an 'emergency brake' mechanism to countries where Covid-19 and/or variants of concern are becoming widespread.

The emergency brake mechanism will be continually assessed by the EU based on the spread of variants. All relevant updates will be posted here. Confirmed guests will be notified directly of major changes.
