BERLIN (dpa-AFX) – Because of the spread of the highly contagious Omikron variant of the coronavirus, the federal government has tightened the entry rules from virus variant areas. Anyone entering Germany from such an area will need a negative PCR test in the future. The government announced on Wednesday after a cabinet decision. With the change in the coronavirus entry regulation, obligations to provide evidence and tests will soon apply to everyone aged six and over.

The health ministers of the federal states had previously spoken out in favor of the changes in order to prevent the spread of Omikron for as long as possible and to slow it down so that even more people can be vaccinated. Virus variant areas are currently various countries in southern Africa and, since Monday, Great Britain.

According to the ordinance, stricter protective precautions should help to ensure that infections are discovered early before entry. The PCR test obligation also applies to travelers who only stop in Germany while passing through.
