Those returning from risk areas during the vacation period are required to take a free coronavirus test. The Federal Constitutional Court has rejected an urgent motion filed against the need to test travelers returning from Mallorca.

The judges’ decision is based on the fact that the personal desire of family members is against the public interest in the overall effort to contain and control the spread of the coronavirus. The judgment of 25 August was published today in Karlsruhe (Az. 1 BvR 1981/20).

An application was submitted by a family from Germany who is currently on vacation in Mallorca. This weekend, on Saturday, the family returns to Germany. As you know, the Spanish island of Mallorca, beloved by the Germans, was declared a risk zone on August 14. By applying, the family hoped to avoid the mandatory test when entering the country. “Compulsory testing” violates the right to liberty and security of person, the vacationers argued.

The decision on the concurrent constitutional complaint has not yet been made. The case is still pending before the court.
