Individuals who are fully vaccinated, symptom-free and travelling from a variant-free area no longer need to adhere to the 10-day quarantine policy in line with both the recent Department of Defense removal of the Restriction of Movement requirement for vaccinated personnel and Rheinland-Pfalz state guidelines.
That means individuals traveling into Rheinland-Pfalz from the United States, as well as other risk areas and high-incidence regions, won't have to quarantine if they meet the criteria above.
Fully-vaccinated Soldiers, family members, and Department of the Army civilians will no longer have to quarantine to enter the German state of Rheinland-Pfalz in accordance with the current state ordinance and the Senior Responsible Officer for the footprint, 21st Theater Sustainment Command Commanding General Maj. Gen. Chris Mohan.
Fully vaccinated is defined as 14 days post-completion of COVID-19 vaccination with an FDA-authorized vaccine, as well as meeting all of the CDC criteria for the specific vaccine administered.
The host nation change went into effect April 20 and Army legal officials reviewed and confirmed the applicability for the Rheinland-Pfalz footprint with USAREUR-AF and EUCOM leadership.
Travelers arriving to Rheinland-Pfalz, including those who are fully vaccinated, coming from a location listed as a variant area by the country's Robert Koch Institute must quarantine for 14 days.
In addition, unvaccinated children are still required to quarantine in compliance with German travel guidelines.
The change in policy for U.S. Army personnel in the footprint complies with host nation guidelines on quarantine requirements.
