Contrary to the European trend and the calls of the European Commissioners to prepare for the autumn outbreaks of covid and return to restrictions, Germany announced its intention, obeying common sense, to simplify the “anti-covid” rules once again. We are talking about the “mask mode”, which is still valid on flights to and from Germany for all tourists.
For the time being, on flights to/from Germany, the use of FFP2 masks is still mandatory. However, this rule should soon be revised – “if the pandemic allows.” This was stated by the Federal Minister of Health of Germany, Karl Lauterbach. The use of masks “will be recommended on flights” in the future, he added. “It's not a duty for us, it's a matter of common sense.” According to him, the mask regime will be canceled on September 23.
By the way, tour operators and airlines operating in the German tourist market made such a request earlier. They demanded the abolition of the abolition of mandatory masks on flights. The use of masks should be left to the discretion of the passenger, they added.
At the same time, we recall that the other day, the EU 4mission urged all member states to create the necessary structures and strategies to avoid new outbreaks of coronavirus in the upcoming autumn-winter season and respond quickly and sustainably to future increases in incidence. Based on the statement of the department, in the context of travel from countries outside the EU, the European Commissioners want to propose a revision of the relevant Council Recommendation, which usually means tightening the screws for incoming tourists, and even from Russia, in the light of recent events and visa bans, and even more so.
