Germany has placed all of France in the alert zone. A PCR test of less than 48 hours will be mandatory from Monday March 29 for cross-border workers.
On a carpooling area at Lauterbourg (Bas-Rhin), cross-border workers, many, will have to learn new habits from Monday, March 29, and be tested before crossing the German border, located nearby. “Out of the question for me, I won’t“, testifies a worker, who plans to”shut down“. Moselle border workers, subject to this obligation for a month already, are protesting against this obligation, denouncing the long queues and the feeling of discrimination.
Every day, 4,000 cross-border workers from the Eurometropolis of Strasbourg (Bas-Rhin) go to work in Kehl (Germany). The city will increase its free screening capacity in the Stadhalle, which will now be open continuously from Monday to Friday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. “To date, the State has provided us with more than 10,000 tests, explains Toni Vetrano, the mayor of the city. (…) As we welcome a lot of cross-border workers, we need to test more. The Land will provide us with additional tests.” The situation could last for months, according to the mayor. 150 students also come from the Eurometropolis to follow their studies.
