After the Tönnies scandal and the associated “lock down” ordered by two German districts, the Austrian Foreign Ministry is now issuing a level 5 travel warning for the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

As a result of the fact that more than 1.500 positive corona cases were found among the employees of the meat product manufacturer Tönnies and two districts have already imposed the "lock down", Austria's Foreign Ministry issued a partial travel warning of level 5 for the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia on Thursday. Westphalia off.

Austria warns against traveling to the affected region of Germany and calls on Austrians who are there to return to their home country. In the meantime, neither the Republic of Austria nor the Federal Republic of Germany have made any changes to the entry requirements. Also, the Austrian side has not yet issued a landing ban for passenger flights starting in North Rhine-Westphalia. The local authorities are currently monitoring the situation in the neighboring country.
