The German government on Sunday added Austria to its list of high-risk travel destinations, meaning all nine of Germany’s neighbors now have the designation.

Anyone crossing the borders who has not been vaccinated or recently must go into quarantine for 10 days. The isolation period can be shortened if they provide a negative test.

The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Poland and Denmark were already on the list.
