Cuvinte cheie:European citizenship, free movement of persons, restriction, health certificate, SARS-COV-2 virus
This paper highlights the impact of the pandemic in the European space, which involves the protection measures against the SARS-COV-2 virus, its harmful and destructive effects manifested on the population, while highlighting the operational activities of the states, regarding the protection of citizens' health. These actions of the states, with regard to the protection measures against the pandemic, incontestably imply a "passage" in the online sphere of all the processes that ensure the normal conduct of society, restricting certain rights and freedoms of citizens, including the right to free movement, this being possible only on the basis of a health certificate, recognized at European level. So this restriction of movement across borders is a safe way to prevent the population from becoming infected with the killer virus.
