From Sunday, passengers returning from Sweden and Canada should be in quarantine
In addition, areas in Greece, Great Britain, Norway, Latvia, Estonia and a French overseas territory were maintained by the Robert Koch Institute on Friday. On the other hand, an area in Finland was remodeled. The Scandinavian country is the only one in Europe without a risk zone.
In Greece, the Peloponnese was added and, for the first time, a part of the Greek islands in the Aegean Sea: Chios, Icaria, Lesbos, Limnos and Samos. However, no travel warnings have yet been issued for five of the 13 Greek regions: Central Greece, West Greece, Corfu, Crete and the Ionian Islands along the southern Aegean. In Great Britain, Channel Island Jersey was added.
What does classification as a risk area mean? What does a travel alert mean?
Classification as a risky area and travel warnings associated with the Federal Foreign Office does not mean travel restrictions, but should have the greatest potential impact on tourists. Good thing for vacationers: You can cancel trips that have already been booked if their destination has been declared a risk zone. The Bad: People returned from at-risk areas currently have to remain in quarantine for 10 days, but may be prematurely exempted from negative examination from the fifth day after admission.
Classification as a risk zone occurs when a country or region exceeds the limit of 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants in the last seven days. A large part of Germany is also a risk zone according to these criteria.
