Germany has 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 Covasna (Kovászna) county in central Romania were included in the list.
