The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) published updated, color-code maps supporting the Council Recommendation on a coordinated approach to travel measures in the EU.

Areas are marked in the following colors: 

  • Red: if the 14-day cumulative COVID-19 case notification rate ranges from 75 to 200 and the test positivity rate of tests for COVID-19 infection is 4% or more, or if the 14-day cumulative COVID-19 case notification rate is more than 200 but less than 500.
  • Dark red: if the 14-day cumulative COVID-19 case notification rate is 500 or more
  • Grey: if there is insufficient information or if the testing rate is lower than 300 cases per 100 000.

The ECDC also published a data dashboard identifying SARS-CoV-2 variants of interest and concern in Europe.

As of January 13, 2022, the ECDC reported 69% of Europeans had been fully vaccinated against cOVID-19.
