Since mid-March, the German-Czech border has only been passable in a few exceptional cases. This closing of the border has been criticized from various sides. Yesterday people from both countries met at six different places to send a signal that the border should be reopened as soon as possible. In the Euroregion Elbe/Labe, the meetings took place in Ostrov near Tisá and in Zinnwald/Cínovec. Some border crossings are said to have happened, without any intervention by the state.
