European leaders have decided to introduce tighter travel restrictions for the bloc's internal borders to limit the spread of new COVID-19 variants.

"Persons traveling from dark red areas could be required to do a test before departure, as well as to undergo quarantine after arrival. This is within the European Union. And in view of the very serious health situation, all non-essential travel should be strongly discouraged."
