The German Robert Koch Institute of Health removed four Croatian counties s lists of risk areas, and it is about Istria, Krapina-Zagorje, Požega-Slavonia and Bjelovar-Bilogora counties, reported Romeo Draghicchio, Director of the Croatian National Tourist Board in Germany.
Accordingly, the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs lifted the negative warning for travel to these counties, which means that when returning to Germany from these counties, a negative PCR test does not have to be presented and no quarantine is required.
The said decision shall enter into force on 7 March 2021.
In addition to the four Croatian counties, the region that the Robert Koch Institute no longer considers risky is central Finland. Hungary, Jordan and Sweden are new areas with a particularly high risk of infection due to a particularly high number of cases, while Greece, Norway and the US are considered areas with a particularly increased risk of infection.
