Virus tests can be used to identify who has the corona virus and who does not. The federal government has decided: Anyone who comes to Germany from a risk area must do a corona test. Risk area means: Many people have the virus there.Today the Ministry of Health decided: Spain is a high-risk area. The islands of Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza are also risk areas. The decision is important for the people who are there on vacation. You have to do a corona test when you return to Germany. They have to stay at home until the result is there.
