In collaboration with our foreign law firm partners, we continue to update our chart of COVID-19 measures taken by governments around the world. The government measures in the chart include economic measures, labor and employment measures, health and safety measures, and export and import measures.
Today’s update includes new information for Brazil, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, El Salvador, France, Germany, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Japan, Panama, Poland, Russia, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom and Vietnam.
The pace at which countries are imposing new measures has slowed. Most of the changes this week are extensions of certain deadlines relating to economic and labor and employment measures. Additionally, depending on the continent, governments’ emergency declarations and related health and safety measures have been extended or have expired. Some countries in Europe and many in Asia have lifted or eased quarantine and lockdown measures. Generally, export controls and import facilitation measures involving COVID-19-related health and medical goods remain the same with a few exceptions. The updates are bolded in the chart for ease of reference.
Please see our Trump and Trade Update of April 7 for discussion of this initiative.
