Can I enter Romania? 
Depends on where you come from! At the moment there are some countries that require you to stay quarantined for 14 days, you can find a list of them here. 

 There are a set of regulations in place nation-wide, with regards to social distancing, wearing of masks and limitations in regards to large groups, especially in restaurants. If you want to contact the green line while in Romania for more information in regards to the pandemic, call the national Green Line at 0800 800 358.

If you are experiencing symptoms of Covid-19 (fever, dry cough), please call the national emergency line at 112. Recently, cultural and entertainment establishments have resumed their activity, but with added rules (like imposing the wearing of masks and social distancing, as well as limiting group sizes) in order to respect the national regulations.
