COVID-19 measures: An overview on 26 countries across Europe 

Facing the consequences of the COVID-19 Pandemic, which go far beyond the crucial element of public health, many European countries have prepared and implemented immediate measures in order to mitigate the social and economic impact of the outbreak.

Following the first phase of the Pandemic during which almost everywhere, absolute priority was given to the protection of health and the containment of the infection risk, discussions about measures related to an exit strategy and a return to the - new? – normal are emerging, at least in some countries.

Highlighting the most important fields of action of 26 European countries, Deloitte puts under a magnifying glass the measures adopted in the fiscal, economic, and social and employment areas.

The Deloitte Legal COVID-19 EU measures booklet provides meaningful synthetized information on the major measures taken in those countries with the aim of stopping the spread of COVID-19 and mitigating its consequences – as well as on emerging measures related to the preparation for and the implementation of the ramp-up and the way into the new normal.

It aims at giving an overview on these multilayered measures, thereby decreasing complexity for businesses who need to be informed about the situation in numerous jurisdictions.

The material is constantly updated - on a weekly basis - to reflect the dynamic situation.

Keep track of legislative changes: Monitoring of legal and regulatory changes with special consideration of COVID-19 Pandemic-induced impact

The parliaments and governments of many countries have responded to the Pandemic with a variety of measures – both with measures to limit its impact on public health as well as with substantial programs to mitigate COVID-19-Pandemic- and lockdown-induced economic consequences.

Businesses are held to stay informed about new legal and/or regulatory requirements and to consider and implement them promptly in their planning, operations and work processes. This can be associated with major challenges for globally operating companies, as legal and regulatory changes in numerous countries must be identified, assessed, implemented and aligned simultaneously.

In order to support companies in meeting the associated challenges, Deloitte has developed DIAMOND – Deloitte’s Intelligent Regulatory Monitoring and Diagnosis Solution – a solution that identifies legal and regulatory changes in general, including also the COVID-19-Pandemic-induced legal and regulatory changes across various countries and allow companies to keep track of these.
