German nationals and residents will still be allowed to enter from the UK.

They must have a negative test and quarantine for two weeks, regardless of whether they have been vaccinated.

The measures take effect from Sunday evening and France has already introduced similar curbs as coronavirus infections surge in Britain.

The Robert-Koch-Institut – a federal health agency – announced the new rules as it classified the UK as a virus variant area of concern, the highest Covid risk level.

Denmark, France, Norway and Lebanon have also been added to Germany’s high risk list and travel from those countries will also be restricted.

The move comes after another 90,418 daily Covid cases were reported across the UK on Saturday – following days of record highs.
