The four federal states going it alone have created a patchwork in Germany. Because in other federal states the quarantine obligation continues to apply for the time being. Saxony, Lower Saxony and Rhineland-Palatinate could follow with a repeal in the coming days and weeks. Hamburg sticks to this rule.
The different rules have a direct impact on travelers and commuters. People who tested positive could therefore travel by train, bus or plane from Bavaria to Baden-Württemberg, but not to Berlin or Hamburg.
Anyone who is proven to have violated the quarantine rules in Hamburg pays a fine of between 150 and 2,000 euros. Anyone who violates the Corona protection ordinance in Berlin pays between 1000 and 5000 euros.
The Länder determine the corresponding fines. In extreme cases, several thousand euros are due. Bayern even demanded 25,000 euros. However, due to the removal of the quarantine requirement, this regulation is obsolete.
Our editors advise you: Persons from Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Hesse and Schleswig-Holstein who have tested positive should not travel to federal states where quarantine is mandatory at the moment. Otherwise, it can be expensive.
