Information for travelers
For those returning from non-german high-risk areas, they still have to go into quarantine for two weeks after their re-entry into Germany. If you enter or return to Germany from a non-german risk area / risk country, you must report to the health department at your place of residence or residence as soon as possible.
The report is also required if a test was taken at the airport or abroad. Ypu can contact the health departement e.g. by phone. As a returnee from a risk area, you are not allowed to visit the health department personally.
Please call the municipal Corona hotline on 03643 - 762 555 during the current office hours:
Monday - Thursday: 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Friday: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday: no hotline office hours
If you have not already done so, you can make an appointment for a corona test there.
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, commits an administrative offense that can be fined.
As soon as you notice symptoms that are typical of the corona-virus, contact the municipal hotline immediately (762 555). This applies regardless of whether you are a returnee or not. The fourth Thuringian Quarantine Ordinance applies.
Travelers who are now going to risk countries or areas should find out about the current regulations and which rules apply on the day of their return. Which countries are designated as risk areas and which test laboratories are recognized can be seen on the RKI website: https://www.rki.de/DE/Content/InfAZ/N/Neuartiges_Coronavirus/Risikogebiete_neu.html
Attention: This list is continuously updated. The current list on the day of entry into Germany 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.
Free tests (negative test with which you can be released from quarantine):
There is the possibility of a free test. If the travelers can present a current, negative test result for SARS-CoV2 from a recognized laboratory, the quarantine can be dispensed with if there are no symptoms. The smear may have been taken a maximum of 48 hours before entering Germany. A test can also be carried out after entry in order to shorten the quarantine; however, the quarantine rules must first be observed until the negative result is received! Free testing is possible with all general practitioners who have a contract with the Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians.
