The French Minister of State for European Affairs announced on Saturday that Germany will lift its commitment to testing the fight against COVID-19 for cross-border workers arriving from France on Sunday, midnight. “All those who cross the border every day for work and their daily activities will no longer be tested,” said Clement Boone in a press release, welcoming the “return to normality” of this population.
Germany has withdrawn France from “high risk areas”
Across the border Currently, the test must be taken every 48 hours. However, this obligation was lifted on May 13 for those traveling between the French province of Moselle and the regional state of Saarland. The lifting of restrictions comes on the heels of Germany’s decision on Friday to withdraw France from “high risk areas” due to the improvement in the epidemiological situation in this country.
In this context, not all travelers coming from France will be required to observe quarantine for a period of five to ten days upon their arrival on German soil. They will have to present a negative PCR test for less than 72 hours, and be completely vaccinated against the Coronavirus – that is, they received two doses – or considered to be cured. On the other hand, Germany will impose a two-week quarantine period from Sunday for all travelers from the United Kingdom due to the spread of the Indian alternative in this country.
