BERLIN (dpa-AFX) – The federal government classifies Belgium and most of the Netherlands as corona high-risk areas due to the sharp increase in infection numbers from Sunday. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) announced on Friday. Greece and Ireland, which are popular with holidaymakers, now also fall into this category. In the case of the Netherlands, the overseas territories of Aruba, Curacao and Sint Maarten are excluded. According to the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, exceptions also apply to small border traffic between neighboring countries.

Anyone who enters from a high-risk area and is not fully vaccinated or recovered has to be in quarantine for ten days and can only get rid of it with a negative test five days after arrival at the earliest. The following will be removed from the list of high-risk areas on Sunday: French Guiana, New Caledonia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Guiana and Suriname. First the newspapers of the Funke media group reported about it.

According to the country, the rules do not apply to cross-border commuters and people who stay in the Netherlands for less than 24 hours. Here the registration and quarantine requirements are omitted, but not the obligation to provide evidence. For those who have been vaccinated and those who have recovered, two tests per week are sufficient. Visits to relatives for less than 72 hours are still possible without the obligation to register and quarantine.
