COVID-19 TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS AND CATEGORIES (TRAC) DATASET
The COVID-19 TRAC dataset traces all travel restriction policies related to the COVID-19 on a daily basis. Data on travel restrictions were collected from media reports, government documents, and policy announcements by each country's consulates. We classify travel restrictions into three broad categories: (1) targeted restrictions by national governments on outbreak countries; (2) blanket restrictions by national governments on all foreign travel; and (3) supranational restrictions by regional blocs (e.g., the EU). Under each category, we use subcategories of (a) entry restrictions; (b) government-initiated flight cancellations; (c) visa cancellations; and (d) non-air travel restrictions related to land or maritime borders.
