New measures for newcomers from abroad

The Presidency of the Government announced on Monday afternoon new measures for arrivals from abroad, aimed at preventing the spread of the Coronavirus in Tunisia, following the registration of a number of cases of contamination among travellers placed in auto-quarantine on arrival.

These measures include, according to a press release issued on Monday by the Presidency of the Government, the obligation to place all members of the same family from countries not classified on the “green” or “orange” list, including children under 12 years, in compulsory self-confinement. Each member of the same family from an amber-listed country who has not been able to perform a PCR analysis, including children under 12 years of age, will be obliged to observe a period of confinement of at least 3 days, until the services of the Ministry of Health carry out the required analysis, at the expense of the newcomer. In the event that the screening test in question is negative, he or she will be allowed to follow the self-quarantine procedures, the same source says. These measures are part of the monitoring of the epidemiological situation of the pandemic throughout the world, and in Tunisia, according to the same source.
