Only paramedics can commute to Germany, and Saxons to Saxony

Only paramedics can travel to Germany from Czech commuters from Sunday, the Federal Ministry of the Interior announced. Saxony said on Friday that in addition to health workers, it would allow entry to agricultural workers. Bavaria has not yet identified any exceptions. With effect from Sunday, Germany will consider the Czech Republic to be an area with a high incidence of coronavirus mutations.

Bavarian television BR states that in addition to paramedics, agricultural workers will also be able to commute to Germany. Saxony has already announced this. However, Bavaria has not yet provided for any exceptions.

Whether the Länder will add any further exceptions to the German framework regulation is due to the high degree of autonomy in their decision. Therefore, the Federal Ministry of the Interior did not provide any details about other possible exceptions and stated without clarification that a possible adjustment can be expected in the coming days.

The stricter regime will have an impact on tens of thousands of Czech cross-border workers. The Federal Labor Agency (BA) states in its latest statistics from last June that there were 33,800 Czechs working in Germany at the time, of which 22,000 were employed in Bavaria, 8,900 in Saxony and the rest in other Länder. Only a small proportion of them worked in health care, nursing and social services, namely 1,500 people.
