US, Canada taken off Romania’s quarantine list

Romania’s government has amended its travel quarantine list and has taken off the U.S. and Canada after a drop in Covid-19 cases there, according to a statement.

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

A comprehensive list of those individuals needing to quarantine includes visitors and Romanians who have come from countries including Spain, Italy, France, Germany and United Kingdom which have large Romanian communities.

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

Here is the list which was published late Sunday.

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

Travelers 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 “with the return to the country of people potentially infected, which generates a constant pressure on the local authorities and the healthcare system’s ability to manage.”
