Federal Minister of the Interior Horst Seehofer plans to shorten the self-isolation period for those returning from coronavirus risk areas, – reports the news portal ThePioneer with reference to the draft decree of the German Ministry of the Interior.
The obligation to leave for self-isolation for those entering the country from regions of risk remains. The list of risk zones is determined and updated by the Robert Koch Institute, however, in the future, the period of self-isolation will be reduced from 14 to 10 days – four days less than before. “On the fifth day of quarantine, travelers can take a test. Its negative result will be a reason to end the isolation, ”the project says. “The test can be carried out no earlier than the fifth day after entering the country.”
If those who entered the country despite a negative test within ten days of entering Germany develop symptoms typical of the coronavirus, such as cough, fever, runny nose or loss of smell and taste, they must immediately report this to the local competent health authority. The model regulation of the Minister of the Interior will be a recommendation for all federal states.
