This decision will take effect from “Sunday midnight,” the RKI health surveillance authority said, specifying that people arriving from Britain must undergo a mandatory two-week quarantine in Germany, including for people vaccinated or cured of Covid-19.

Several other European countries, such as France, have already taken measures to limit the entry of travelers from British territory to their soil.
