Covidien restrictions on visitors to Germany to be extended until the end of May

The current covidien restrictions on vacationers returning to Germany are to remain in effect for the time being. The Federal Ministry of Health wants to extend the validity of the regulation on the matter, which expires next Thursday, until the end of May, a ministry spokesman said in Berlin. He added that consultations on the issue are ongoing in the government.

If the regulations remain in force, all people over the age of twelve entering Germany will still have to have proof of being vaccinated or recovered or a negative coronavirus test, according to the 3G rule. The current regulation also stipulates quarantine for people returning from a high-risk area (Hochrisikogebiet) or a mutation area (Virusvariantengebiet). However, no state is currently classified by the federal government as such an area on the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) list.
