Czech Rep., Apr 14 (BD) – Germany will end the border controls with the Czech Republic at midnight on Thursday. The regime was introduced on February 14th at the borders with the Czech Republic and the Austrian Federal State of Tyrol, as both were added to the list of high-risk areas due to the number of infections of the new variants.
One month ago, Germany decided to extend the transitional regime for a further two weeks. But while the measures were relaxed with Tyrol at the end of March, the German Federal Interior Minister, Horst Seehofer, decided to prolong the regime at the borders with the Czech Republic until April 14th.
