Data on country response measures to COVID-19

The data to be downloaded below aligns with the selected national public response measures included in the Weekly Country COVID-19 Overviews report.

Disclaimer: Data on non-pharmacological interventions (or response measures) are based on information available from official public sources, and may not capture measures taken by countries not reported on publicly available websites. The situation is rapidly evolving and this is a snapshot of the measures that countries in the EU/EEA have reported so far. The response measures shown are national measures, reported on public official websites. The response measures collected include canceling mass gatherings (for certain events or banning gatherings of a certain size); closure of public places (including restaurants, entertainment venues, non-essential stores, partial or complete closure of public transport, etc.); closure of educational institutions (including nursery or nursery school, primary and secondary schools, and higher education); “Stay at home” recommendations for high-risk or vulnerable population groups (eg the elderly, people with underlying health conditions, people with physical disabilities, etc.); ‘Stay at home’ recommendations for the general population (whether voluntary or not); ‘Stay at home’ orders for the general population (enforced and also referred to as ‘lockdown’), use of protective masks in public places/on public transport (exclusive voluntary recommendations and mandatory commitments presented separately) After / closing the premises.

Data on response measures have several limitations. First, there is significant heterogeneity in physical distancing policies and their implementation between countries. For example, the level of enforcement of measures may vary between countries and there may be specific rules and exceptions to measures, making interpretation of the data difficult. The measures presented in these figures are those reported at the national level, and it should be noted that as the outbreak develops in certain regions, regional or local measures often precede national measures. Exact dates of submission were often available from official sources but delays may have occurred in their implementation. In addition, the availability of public data from official government sources varies between countries. For some countries, data is no longer available on official websites regarding measures that are no longer in force, which may result in data for more recent measures being incomplete.
