UE de fronteiras fechadas pela crise do coronavírus

By Jordi Bou

March 13, 2020 - A União Europeia proíbe todas as viagens não essenciais na zona
Schengen de livre circulação quando mais países fecham as fronteiras em resposta à pandemia de coronavírus.

European Commission president, Ursula von der Leyen, said that the measure would cover EU countries and non-members of the bloc that are part of the 26-country Schengen passport-free travel zone. 

EU citizens, their family members, bloc residents and workers in sectors deemed “essential” would be exempt from the measure.

The measures would be in place for at least 30 days.

Meanwhile, tough new measures in France restricting movement from the home are coming into effect on Tuesday.
