BERLIN - The German health authorities no longer consider Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten "high-risk areas" with regard to the coronavirus. The whole of the Dutch Caribbean was on the list of risky countries and territories for months, but on Friday the German health department, the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), removed Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten.
Bonaire, Saba and St. Eustatius are still on the list. Despite a strong increase in the number of infections, the Netherlands has not been scaled up by the RKI.
Cuba, Jamaica and four other Caribbean islands have also been scrapped. It means that people can enter Germany from those islands without any problems if they have been vaccinated, cured, or have taken a corona test.
