The discussion about compulsory testing for those returning to Mallorca does not stop in Germany. Now the eloquent Markus Söder (CSU), Prime Minister of Bavaria, calls for such an approach and thus closes the Demands from Lower Saxony.
At the moment there is no legal basis for this, which is why the impression of so-called “event legislation” arises. This would take the existing travel rules ad absurdum, because the Balearic Islands are test-free and quarantine-free when returning to the Federal Republic due to the low number of infections. However: Germans have to present a negative PCR result when entering Spain.
Whitsun and summer: Markus Söder "very optimistic"
Söder announces that appropriate test capacities will be made available at the Bavarian airports. The Prime Minister wants to give every returnee the opportunity to be examined for Covid-19. But he did not say whether these will be free or paid. Regarding Easter, the politician has general concerns that the Mallorca holidays could have a negative impact on developments in Germany.
Markus Söder is optimistic about Pentecost and the summer holidays. He said that by then there will be great progress in terms of vaccinations, so he is "very optimistic" about vacation trips from Pentecost. On the youngest Setbacks regarding AstraZeneca the Bavarian CSU politician did not die.
