Quarantine for entering passengers from other EU-states
As of May
16th 2020, the obligation for entering passengers to go into quarantine
is limited to entering passengers from third countries. Third countries are defined
as states that are not member of the European Union or the Schengen-Area. The
United Kingdom and Northern Ireland are not a third country. Persons from a
non-member-country who have entered Germany via a member state of the European
Union, the Schengen-Area or the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland have to go
into domestic quarantine for 14 days.
If the number of new cases is above the threshold of 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days, there is also an obligation to self-quarantine for entering passengers from EU-Member-Countries, the Schengen-Area or the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland. The federal government of Germany and the Robert Koch-Institute will define the relevant countries above the threshold in their situation reports, respectively in publications. Currently, no country exceeds the threshold.
Notification requirement for commencement of work
So far, there was already a notification requirement for commencement of work if the stay in Hesse was more than 72 hours (so-called “Seasonal workers regulation”, § 2 Abs. 2 der 1. VO). This regulation continues, however, from now on, it is limited to persons entering from a third country.
However, a comparable obligation was introduced newly (§ 2a 1. VO) for persons who are entering from a member state of the EU, the Schengen-Area or the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland for the purpose of discharge of professional duties. According to this, a commencement of work has to be reported to the local health authority responsible for the place of business if the stay will be longer than 72 hours and a communal accommodation for more than 5 persons not belonging to the own household will take place.
Background is the development of „hot spots“ of infections with SARS-CoV-2 among persons in precarious living-, working- and especially housing-conditions observed in other federal states.
By this notification requirement it be guaranteed that especially the accommodation can be checked – if necessary on-site- for the compliance with health rules (no overcrowding).
