English term or phrase: border closure
Definition from Wikipedia:
(n.) A movement restriction measure, preventing movement of people between different jurisdictions with limited or no exceptions. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, a border closure may refer to a regional or national measure taken in order to contain the spread of the virus —either to keep the virus from spreading outwards, or into a previously uncontaminated zone.

Example sentence(s):
  • After that, Russia, which shares a border with various countries in the EU, also announced its own border closure. We have already had a number of border closures within the EU and the wider region — in keeping with the global response to movement, and specifically in response to outbreaks that started earlier (for example, Italy has had travel restrictions in place for weeks at this point). TechCrunch
  • Both governments seem wary of disrupting commerce; some $1.4bn-worth of goods crosses the border daily. The annual flow is the equivalent of nearly half of Mexico’s gdp. Besides, border closures do little good once an epidemic has taken hold on both sides. The Economist
  • Local law enforcement officials say rumors about border closure are unfounded, waste of time Malheur Enterprise
