We are currently in unprecedented times, for EUFOR, for Bosnia and Herzegovina, for the continent of Europe and, indeed, the world. Many countries and organisations are imposing measures to combat the danger presented by the COVID-19 virus, EUFOR is no exception.
EUFOR will continue to conduct operations, limiting the movement of personnel in order to minimize exposure and potential transmission of the virus. Operational duties are conducted with the highest possible care. However, Operation EUFOR Althea remains committed to fulfilling its obligations under UN Security Council resolution 2496 (2019) and supporting the authorities of BiH in providing a safe and secure environment for all citizens.
Access to Camp Butmir
The preventative measures that EUFOR has put in place, in line with the measures introduced by the host nation, include restrictions on entry and exit to Camp Butmir. Only people living or working on base have unescorted access. Suppliers should make arrangements with their point of contact before attempting to enter Camp Butmir.
