Germany to relax quarantine rules for EU, Schengen and UK arrivals

Germany is to relax coronavirus quarantine rules for travellers arriving from the European Union, the Schengen passport-free zone and Britain, a spokesman for the Interior Ministry said on Friday.

Authorities will only recommend travellers go into quarantine if they arrive from countries with elevated numbers of infections, he told a news conference.

A mandatory two-week quarantine will still apply for travellers from those countries outside the EU, the spokesman said.
