Even after the classification as a virus variant area in the night on Sunday, there are rules for people entering Germany from Tyrol and the Czech Republic.

Many travelers from Tyrol and the Czech Republic to Germany have to fulfill stricter quarantine, test and registration obligations even after the classification as virus variant area is no longer applicable. 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. Austria itself wants to “constantly monitor” the traffic situation at the borders, it said.

Restrictions still apply

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.

Tyrol and Vienna relieved after decision

Many travelers from Tyrol and the Czech Republic to Germany have to fulfill stricter quarantine, test and registration obligations even after the classification as virus variant area is no longer applicable. 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. Austria itself wants to “constantly monitor” the traffic situation at the borders, it said.

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”.

Authorities will “continue to monitor” the situation

In any case, the Austrian authorities want to “continue to monitor the traffic situation around Kufstein and, as in the past few weeks, act appropriately to the respective situation,” the APA said on Saturday. As a result, there was “no traffic collapse” because of the German entry restrictions along the Brenner corridor. Already at the Brenner pass, transit trucks were checked to determine whether they met the requirements for entry into Germany, and truck traffic was metered.

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.
