EU plans course for re-opening of member states borders

The EU Commission has unveiled a package of guidelines and recommendations to help member states gradually lift travel restrictions and allow tourism businesses to reopen.
The hope is that there will be a unified response from member states. This is against a backdrop of some countries considering imposing 14-day quarantines, while others which earlier had imposed quarantines looking at relaxing them (Germany and Greece).
The Commission’s Tourism and Transport package includes suggestions on member states adopting “a common approach to restoring free movement and lifting restrictions at EU internal borders in a gradual and coordinated way.”
The advice is that as member states reduce the circulation of the virus, blanket restrictions to free movement should be replaced by more targeted measures.
