Germany takes Catalonia and the Canary Islands from its list of high-risk areas by Covid

Germany has announced that since this Sunday it will take out from its list of high-risk areas to Catalonia, Canarias, Asturias, Castile-La Mancha and Valencia, but that will keep the rest of Spain in this classification.

The Robert Koch Institute of Virology has communicated these changes by publishing the weekly updating of the list of risk zones by the pandemic, a classification that elaborates together with the Ministries of Foreign, Health and Interior.

These five autonomous communities become simply risk zones, the least serious of the three categories, behind the high-risk zone and risk zone by dangerous variant.The change is that travelers over 12 years old from these communities Autonomous will no longer have to save quarantine ten days when arriving in Germany.

However, the presentation of a negative test or a vaccination certificate remains a mandatory requirement. It is difficult to estimate the effect that the decision may have on German tourism, which has in Canarias and Catalonia two of its main destinations in Spain.Inmore, summer holidays have been completed or are about to end up in more than half of the 16 German Federated States.
