The day before the tightening of the regime: What is the situation on the German border?

“We are receiving many questions from citizens who are unsure and want to know how it will go next,” said a spokesman for the Passau unit of the Federal Police, which is in charge of border surveillance. According to him, even commuters do not cross the Czech-Bavarian border today.

From Sunday, only Czechs who work in healthcare will be able to commute to work for work. Saxony said on Friday that in addition to health workers, it would allow entry to agricultural workers. Bavaria has not yet identified any exceptions, but according to local media, an exception is being prepared for farmers there as well.

This morning, in addition to the Czech-Bavarian border, peace also prevailed on the border between Bavaria and Tyrol. According to a spokesman for the federal police department in Rosenheim, almost no cars drove across the Kiefersfelden border crossing southeast of Munich. “Even truck transport is smooth,” he said.

Police at the border have been checking compliance with the rules against the spread of coronavirus for several days. Checkpoints have been set up on some side roads. “It’s not like we stop every car, but we look at every car,” a Rosenheim spokesman said today.

However, from Sunday, the situation will be significantly different from Sunday. “Most likely we will check each car to see if the staff has a negative test,” he said.

At midnight, Germany will include the Czech Republic and Tyrol in the list of countries with a high incidence of SARS-CoV-2 mutations. This will restore permanent border controls. Only German citizens, people living in Germany and selected groups of commuters will be allowed to enter the country. A negative coronavirus test will be required to enter Germany, which will also have to be submitted by freight transport workers or transit persons.
