České Budějovice – Seven large border crossings with Austria remain open in southern Bohemia as of today. The Austrian side closed the other crossings. This is due to the high number of people infected with coronavirus in the Czech Republic. However, most of the closed crossings are for pedestrians only, South Bohemian police spokesman Jiří Matzner told ČTK.
“All major crossings are still in operation, so that they can be used, for example, by people who commute to Austria for work or study,” said Matzner. Dolní Dvořiště, Zadní Zvonková, České Velenice, Halámky, Nová Bystřice, Slavonice and Studánky remain open.
Signs and information signs are placed in front of crossings that are out of order. Some have barricades in front of them.
Austria has introduced border controls on its side since Saturday. Travelers to Austria from the Czech Republic and Slovakia must continue to sign a declaration that they will resort to quarantine, otherwise they may be refused entry. Exceptions apply to commuters and freight transport. Commuters do not need a negative test or quarantine. However, they must prove on arrival that they have an employer in Austria.
