The Bavarian Ministry of Health announced on Saturday that it is crucial whether you have stayed in a virus variant area in the past ten days. In Tyrol and Vienna they had previously shown themselves pleased about the relief.
The other restrictions also apply if the area has been downgraded in the meantime, as applies to the Czech Republic and Tyrol with effect from 00:00 on Sunday, it said. For those arriving in a virus variant area in the past ten days, the quarantine is longer at 14 days. In addition, they cannot test themselves five days after entering the country.
Even stricter rules apply to entry: Anyone who was in a virus variant or high incidence area in the ten days prior to entry must present a negative test upon entry. This would also be possible retrospectively when entering from a normal risk area. This is particularly relevant for Tyrol, the Czech Republic is still a high incidence area. On the question of whether there will be more border controls, the Bavarian Ministry referred to the federal government.
Kurz and Platter relieved
In Tyrol and Vienna, people were relieved on Friday after Germany’s decision to no longer classify Tyrol as a virus variant area. You could convince Germany to “end the disproportionate border controls”, said Tyrolean Governor Günther Platter (ÖVP). Federal Chancellor Sebastian Kurz (ÖVP) in turn saw the decision as a sign that the measures in Tyrol against the South African mutation had taken effect.
In the evening, South Tyrolean governor Arno Kompatscher immediately asked Austria to relax the tightened border regime on the Brenner. Platter had already assured him “that the abolition of border controls on the German-Austrian border will also make those on the Brenner obsolete and will therefore be lifted”.
Since February 14th there have been stationary controls at the borders between Tyrol and Bavaria. Only Germans and foreigners with a residence and residence permit in Germany were allowed to enter. There were exceptions, for example, for truck drivers and cross-border commuters with systemically relevant professions. You had to present a negative corona test that was no older than 48 hours.
