Germany closed its southern borders. Thousands of people turned back


15,877 people were turned back from the German-Czech and German-Austrian (Tyrol) borders after restrictions were imposed on February 14 for fear of the spread of the coronavirus mutation. According to “Bild am Sonntag”, a total of 104,178 people have been checked so far.

Only people who can present the current SARS-CoV-2 test results and who are included in the group for which an exception was made when deciding to temporarily close the borders can cross the border.

During the first week, 4,522 people who had not presented a negative test for the presence of coronavirus were not admitted to Germany. The remaining 10 thous. persons did not belong to the groups authorized to enter.

The federal government has recognized the Czech Republic, Slovakia and large parts of Austrian Tyrol as epidemiologically dangerous areas. From last Sunday, only Germans and foreigners with a residence permit in Germany can enter Germany from there.

Exceptions and negative coronavirus test

The exceptions are truck drivers and people commuting to work abroad, performing professions important for the economy.

If you want to cross the border, you must have a negative coronavirus test result no older than 48 hours. The head of the federal police, Dieter Romann, in an interview with the newspaper expressed his satisfaction with the situation in both border sections.

‘The number of (entry) refusals has decreased proportionally since the introduction of border controls as travelers are trying to be more compliant,’ he said.
