What resources are people using to determine specific isolation requirements by country in Europe? I am sure there must be an easier way to find reliable and up to date information, than the google searches I have been doing. :)
Thanks for asking this question. I have been trying google searches, the Rick Steves office, and this forum. My tour is approaching quickly and includes 5 countries.
Badger - I poked around the website, but I can't seem to find the isolation requirements if testing positive in a country? It is probably there and I am just missing it?
Carla - yes I think it's important to be clear on exactly what happens when testing positive in a specific country. I am planning future travel and it affects my decision on where I will go.

You select the country you are interested in. Then a map with a text field appears. In the field to the right you can select the information you want about the country, like can I enter this country? Can I transit this country? What are the rules in the country? And so on.
E.g. here is the information for Estonia: https://reopen.europa.eu/en/map/EST/7012
Christine and Badger - thank you both for the the responses and information. It is helpful in trying to sort out the requirements for travel.
I am in the process of trying to choose which RS tour to add, and part of the decision is if I test positive on tour, what will that set in motion. It appears that "self-isolate" and "quarantine" mean different things in different countries. (They also have different meanings in different travel insurance policies, but that is an entirely different rabbit hole I've gone down.) Some countries seem to allow one to go out under certain conditions, such as to a pharmacy, or an outside walk, whereas other countries have a strict never step out of the hotel policy. And yes, I am probably overthinking this. :)
