Leave the kids behind

The vaccine against COVID-19 was supposed to make travel easier, but for families with children, problems will persist. Since the vaccines are currently available only for adults, kids still pose the risk of transmitting the disease, even if their parents are vaccinated.

So, in the case of families that travel with their kids in a country with a high incidence rate of COVID-19, the younger ones will have to be quarantined upon return to Romania, together with one adult parent, said Florentina Furtunescu, a representative of the country’s National Institute of Public Health.

The Romanian authorities decided that vaccinated people returning from high-risk areas are no longer required to quarantine if more than 10 days have passed since the administration of the second vaccine dose. (Bogdan Neagu | EURACTIV.ro)
