Germany to add Netherlands and Spain to “high incidence areas” list
Germany will again classify the Netherlands and Spain as “high incidence areas”. This also applies to the Balearic and Canary Islands.
The restrictions take effect at midnight and also apply to truck drivers.
For previous stays in high-incidence areas that occurred during the 10 days prior to entering Germany, truck drivers have to present a negative test for stays longer than 72 hours. PCR tests should be no older than 72 hours, while rapid tests must be done no longer than 25 hours before entry to Germany.
Alternatively, drivers may provide proof of full vaccination (determined as being 14 days after the final shot of the vaccine) or recovery.
Denmark and individual regions in France are also now designated as risk areas. However, they are deemed lower risk than Spain and the Netherlands, which means the above measures are not yet required.
