HELSINKI (Pakistan Point News / Sputnik - 24th July, 2021) Estonia has toughened coronavirus-related restrictions on cross-border movement, imposing a mandatory 10-day quarantine requirement for arrivals from 11 European countries starting July 26, the Estonian foreign ministry said on Friday.
The restriction applies to countries where the 14-day infection rate exceeded 200 new cases per 100,000 people a day, according to the statement.
The 10-day quarantine does not apply to those coming to Estonia from countries with the incidence rate below 75 new cases per 100,000 people a day. When entering from countries with the figure from 75 to 200, travelers will be required to present a certificate either indicating a negative COVID-19 test result, a recovery from the disease, or vaccination in order to avoid self-isolation.
People arriving from red-list countries with the figure above 200 can be exempt from the quarantine if they have recovered from COVID-19 or have been vaccinated. Others are obligated to remain in self-isolation for 10 days, or pass two negative tests for COVID-19 at least six days apart.
For Estonia, the two-week infection rate is estimated at 65.4 per 100,000 people a day.
