The Minister of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) Luís Barroso granted this Monday (6) a period of 48 hours for the federal government to comment on a lawsuit that asks for the mandatory quarantine and proof of vaccination against covid-19 for who enters the country.

The action, filed by the Sustainability Network, reached the Supreme Court on November 26 and was distributed to the minister, who is the rapporteur of the case. The caption intends to make the adoption of recommendations made by the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) mandatory.

"I determine the hearing of the authorities from which Ordinance No. 658/2021 issued, within 48 (forty-eight) hours, in view of the approaching recess. After the period has elapsed, the records must return to conclusion, for the consideration of the injunctions", Barroso dispatched.

According to Anvisa, the Brazilian policy for borders should be revised, with the establishment of charging proof of vaccination for tourists and other travelers who wish to enter the country by plane or by land, in combination with testing protocols.
