Coronavirus, Public Life & Mobility

What do I need to know?

The coronavirus has grown into a pandemic. There have been restrictive measures taken worldwide in order to limit its further spread. The limitations introduced had, among other things, disrupted transnational travel as border controls and entry bans are being enforced. Public life in Germany is changing: Facilities are closed, nightlife restricted and social distancing is the order of the day. Such swift shifts can cause many questions, the most important of which we answer here.
