Germany extends border controls with Czechia
Germany will extend border controls with the Czech Republic and Austria until 17 March. According to the DPA, the Deputy German Minister of the Interior, Stephan Mayer, announced this today at a closed session of the Federal Parliament’s Committee on Internal Affairs. So far, controls on significant travel restrictions have been planned to date.
German border police are monitoring compliance with Germany’s quarantine measures on countries considered to be dangerous coronavirus mutations. The Czechia, with a large part of Tyrol and Slovakia, have been on this list since 14 February.
Only Germans, foreigners living permanently in Germany, freight carriers, or some commuters may travel from these areas to Germany if they prove themselves with a negative coronavirus test no more than 48 hours old. Everyone except cross-border workers and truck drivers must quarantine upon arrival.
