The German authorities plan from July 1 to lift restrictions on entry from countries in which, for seven days, the incidence of coronavirus was below 200 per 100 thousand people. The corresponding decision was made by Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, according to the German newspaper Bild.
Free entry to Germany was allowed for residents of countries not included in the list of regions with a high risk of infection with COVID-19. Countries were included in this list if the number of cases of the disease in seven days does not exceed 50 per 100 thousand people. The restrictions were introduced in Germany at the end of January amid the identification of new strains of coronavirus.
In May, Germany introduced preferences for citizens who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have suffered the disease over the past six months. Such people were relieved of the obligation to take a coronavirus test to visit shops, museums, hairdressers and beauty salons. In addition, they will be almost free to meet with friends and not obey the curfew.
