Information for travelers
The new federal coronavirus entry ordinance of May 12, 2021 brings together the provisions of the original coronavirus entry ordinance, the coronavirus protection ordinance and the model quarantine ordinance. This means that the registration, quarantine and test verification requirements as well as the ban on transport from virus variant areas are regulated nationwide.
The 6th Thuringian Quarantine Ordinance therefore no longer applies.
If you enter or return to Germany from a risk area / high incidence / virus variant area, you must report to the health department of your place of residence or residence as soon as possible.
You have a duty to report. This applies regardless of whether the stay abroad was of a tourist, professional or family nature. Anyone who fails to report this, for example to avoid quarantine, is committing an administrative offense that is subject to a fine.
As soon as you notice typical corona symptoms, contact the municipal hotline immediately (762 555). This applies regardless of whether you are a returnee or not.
For those returning from a risk area ,
that you are initially in quarantine at home for 10 days and must undergo a test for an infection with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus either up to 48 hours before entering Germany or immediately after your re-entry.
The domestic quarantine can only be ended prematurely if proof of recovery, proof of vaccination (vaccines approved according to the Paul Ehrlich Institute) or a negative test certificate has been submitted via the entry portal of the Federal Republic of Germany at www.einreiseanmeldung.de or the Weimar Health Office.
For travelers returning from a high incidence area,
that they have to undergo a test for an infection with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus up to 48 hours before entering Germany, and that they have to go into quarantine for 10 days in Germany.
A negative test result does not release you from the quarantine obligation. After submitting the test result for entry, there is the option of free testing after the 5th day at the earliest, ie on day 6 after entry.
For travelers returning from a virus variant area, the following applies:
that they have to undergo a test for an infection with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus up to 24 hours before entering Germany, and that they have to go into quarantine in Germany for 14 days.
A negative test result does not release you from the quarantine obligation. A shortening on day 5 after entry is not possible.
Which countries are designated as risk areas and which test laboratories are recognized can be seen on the RKI website.
Attention: This list is continuously updated. The list valid in each case on the day of entry into Germany applies!
The report is also required if a test was taken at the airport or abroad.
As a returnee from a risk area, you are not allowed to visit the health department personally. Please report back via www.einreiseanmeldung.de .
The health department can provide advice on this.
Please call the municipal Corona hotline on 03643 - 762 555 during the current office hours :
Mon - Fri: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Sat: 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Whit Monday, May 24th, 9:00 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The hotline is currently very busy. Please try several times.
Please inform yourself on the website of the Thuringian Ministry of Health about the currently applicable regulations.
Those who enter after a stay in a risk area, high incidence or virus variant area bear the costs of the tests themselves.
This applies to both the mandatory test in connection with the entry and the voluntary test to end the quarantine prematurely.
For an antigen test, please call 116 117 of the Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians or a resident doctor in Weimar. (https://www.kv-thueringen.de/bildung).
The CoronaEinreiseV by the Federal Ministry of Health applies .
The quarantine measures and contact restrictions must be strictly adhered to in order to avoid a possible, even unnoticed, spread of the corona virus.
Exceptions only apply to certain constellations.
