In the context of the current outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), as the pandemic was declared on 11th of March 2020 by the World Health Organization, preventive actions are recommended, with respect to the public health risks.
Considering that positive COVID-19-test results were announced in the eligible area of the Romania-Hungary Programme and that several border crossing points between Romania and Hungary have been closed from 12th of March 2020 (Săcuieni, Salonta, Turnu and Valea lui Mihai), the Managing Authority announces the importance of taking precautionary measures, such as restricting the movement of people during this outbreak.
In this respect, you are strongly recommended to take appropriate measures such as reviewing the planned project activities/events to see what activities/events can be postponed to a later date. If deviations or delays occur in projects implementation and the project results and outputs might be affected, the Lead beneficiary should make use of the contractual provisions available for such situations (modification of the calendar of activities, extension of implementation period of the project, the suspension of the implementation period, etc.)
Our priority is the well-being and safety of all of you and that is why we provide this information to immediately support Programme beneficiaries to prepare for and respond to the evolving position regarding COVID-19 in order to prevent and combat the illness.
