FRA-report_PandemicFundamentalRightsImplactions_OlderPeople-May20-coverAs governments gradually lift some of the measures put in place to contain the spread of COVID-19, new fundamental rights concerns arise: how to ensure that the rights to life and health are upheld as daily life transitions to a ‘new normal’. This report by the Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA) outlines some of the measures EU Member States have put in place to protect public health during the Coronavirus pandemic and highlights how the different measures may affect fundamental rights in important areas of daily life. It includes a thematic focus on impact of the pandemic on the fundamental rights of older persons.
