Brandenburg extends quarantine rules for risk areas

The quarantine rules for people entering Brandenburg from risk areas will be extended by four weeks. The cabinet decided on Tuesday in Potsdam that the regulation will now apply until 2 April 2021, according to the state chancellery.

Anyone who comes to Brandenburg from such areas must generally go into domestic quarantine for ten days. The "small border traffic", for example for shopping in Poland, also falls under the quarantine regulation.
However, there are exceptions for work-related commuters across the border to Poland, for schoolchildren, trainees and transients, as well as for family visits. The quarantine ends at the earliest five days after entry if a negative test is presented to the health office. The Robert Koch Institute lists the risk areas on the internet - there are, for example, high infection figures or a high risk due to virus variants.
