In some parts of Germany there is a restriction on contact in public places; in Thuringia and Jena these are recommendations since 13.6.2020. See the detailled regulations of the City of Jena. In Jena, it is currently mandatory to wear a mouth and nose mask in doctor's surgeries/clinics, on public transport, in shops, and offices.

Entry from certain countries on the "positive list" agreed by the EU member states is currently possible without restrictions.
Entry from others countries is possible only if proof of an important reason can be provided. The commencement or continuation of studies will be recognised as an important reason for entry. Students and applicants should therefore be able to present a currently valid certificate of study or admission to studies.
Persons arriving from EU countries, Iceland, the Principality of Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland are not required to undergo quarantine if the number of newly infected persons in the state in question in relation to the population does not exceed 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 7 days (see map).
