Tourism association disappointed with the continued ban on accommodation | message


BERLIN (dpa-AFX) – The German Tourism Association has shown disappointment that the ban on accommodation should continue. “It is a major setback for Germany as a travel destination that the bans on accommodation in many federal states are initially still in place,” said managing director Norbert Kunz on Wednesday evening. If you follow the rules, holidays in Germany do not pose any particular risk. The hosts of holiday apartments and hotels have proven that they take the contact and hygiene rules seriously and implement them. “Overnight stays are not the problem and should therefore still be possible.”

Most federal states decided last Wednesday that citizens from places with very high numbers of corona infections may only be accommodated when traveling within Germany if they can present a negative corona test no more than 48 hours old. This should take effect for travelers from areas with more than 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days. There was massive criticism of this. The federal government and the federal states did not reach an agreement in the Chancellery on Wednesday either and postponed the issue until November 8th. Until then, this measure should be checked for its effectiveness./zeh/DP/he
