Déjà vu: Germany plans to resume anti-COVID measures

In the fall, anti-COVID measures could return to Germany again – such as the mask regime, at least indoors, as well as new vaccination campaigns and restrictions on crossing the border. It was with this statement that the German Federal Minister of Health, Karl Lauterbach, “made happy” tourists. He said he believes all these measures are necessary to help curb the spread of the COVID-19 disease in the fall and winter.

“Germany needs to prepare for a new wave of coronavirus infections in the colder half of the year. The country needs a new set of rules for autumn and winter,” the minister said, presenting his new seven-point plan. It just includes a new vaccination campaign with three different vaccines and changes to the free testing program for COVID-19. Whether entry and exit restrictions will return among these items is not specified.

At the same time, the “covid” Infection Protection Act expires in September. It is possible that a new seven-point plan is being prepared to replace it. However, while the statements of the Minister of Health, as emphasized in the media, are not an official statement.

Thus, the German authorities have yet to confirm whether new rules will be introduced as soon as the summer ends. Meanwhile, Germany opened up for Russian tourists. The country has resumed issuing all types of visas for Russians, including tourist ones. “Through the visa service centers of VisaMetric, the acceptance of applications for the issuance of visas necessary for entering Germany for any purpose of travel is resumed. An appointment for an interview is made on the company's website,” the German representation said in a statement. It also reminds that from June 11, all restrictions on entry into Germany related to the COVID-19 pandemic have been temporarily lifted. Read the details at the link.
