Coronavirus: Germany Declares Hungary’s Győr-Moson-Sopron County High-risk Region

MTI-Hungary Today 2020.09.24.

Germany on Wednesday declared Győr-Moson-Sopron county, in northwest Hungary, a high-risk region due to the spread of the novel coronavirus there.

Travellers from high-risk regions into Germany are required to self-quarantine and notify the authorities, and submit to a coronavirus test within 72 hours after arrival. The public health authority may lift the quarantine if the test result is negative.

After Budapest, Győr-Moson-Sopron is the second Hungarian region to be declared high-risk by Germany.

Germany updated its list of high-risk areas late on Wednesday. Among others, nearly the whole of the Czech Republic and Kovászna (Covasna) county in central Romania were included in the list.
