The neighboring country announced that, in addition to presenting a negative PCR test, Brazilians or tourists coming from Brazil should be quarantined for a period of 7 days, at home or in health facilities.

The new entry protocol for travelers from Brazil was adopted to try to reduce the risk of circulation of the Brazilian strain, which is more contagious.
