From August 1, all people over 6 years of age entering Germany will have to test negative for the presence of the coronavirus. Exceptions apply to people who have been vaccinated or recovered, Bild daily wrote Thursday evening.
However, both vaccinated and treated individuals will have to undergo testing If they return from areas known to be at risk of contracting virus variants The obligation to take the tests is that it applies to everyone, regardless of whether they come by plane, train or their own car. Until now, it was only about people arriving in Germany.
The federal government originally planned to introduce only mandatory testing from September 11th. By that time, the holidays will end in most federal states, for example in Hamburg (August 4) and Berlin (August 6) it will end in the coming days.
Information about the possible application of stricter entry rules from August 1 has appeared in the German media for several days, but so far the government has not officially confirmed this.
