Restrictions for frontier workers in the internal market due to COVID-19 (cepInput)


Following the uncoordinated and in some cases arbitrary closure of national borders as a result of the Corona crisis, the EU Commission has published Guidelines to better coordinate entry restrictions at the internal market borders. In doing so, the EU Commission relies on the cooperation of the Member States. The cep has evaluated the guidelines.


The Commission's request to the Member States to coordinate their actions is appropriate and indispensable for the functioning of the internal market. Affected workers should be exempt from national quarantine regulations.
