Germany is introducing mandatory home quarantine for people returning from the Spanish regions of Catalonia, Navarre and Aragon.
These three areas will count as risk areas from Friday onwards because the number of infections with the coronavirus per 100,000 inhabitants is above 50.
People travelling to Germany from one of the Spanish areas must stay at home for fourteen days and report to the local GGD.
Next week, people returning from risk areas will be required to be tested for the coronavirus.
Since Tuesday, Germany has already advised Germans not to travel to Catalonia, Navarra or Aragón.
