We all knew it was going to happen, so here it is. The ECDC (European Centre for Disease Prevention Control) has announced that the Netherlands is officially a code red (high-risk) country due to the high number of coronavirus infections. Groningen has been labelled dark red.
This means that travellers coming from the Netherlands might find it harder to go on holiday. Each country can determine what restrictions they put on Dutch travellers. This could include a quarantine obligation or an entry ban. Some countries might change these depending on whether or not you have been vaccinated.
A country is labelled red if there are 200 to 499 infections per 100,000 inhabitants in the past 14 days, according to the EDCD. Dark red is if there are 500 or more infections per 100,000.
The other countries that have been marked red include Spain, Portugal, Luxembourg, and Cypris. Parts of Greece and Denmark are also red.
