Corona Update, August 15, 2021 – New Corona high-risk areas – quarantine mandatory!

The constantly changing decisions being made by the German federal and state governments to combat the coronavirus mean that many expats, along with everyone else, are faced with having to keep track of current regulations and then acting in accordance with the rules. That is why PROGEDO – the first friend abroad – regularly informs interested parties and customers about current events in Germany relating to Covid-19.

Since there is now a lot of information on the homepage of the German federal government on the subject of coronavirus, we no longer go into detail about all the information. The homepage with full details can be found here, although unfortunately this page is not available in English:
