    Episode 6: Closed borders and quarantines - Are there better ways to travel safely during the pandemic? Common Ground


The pandemic has wreaked havoc on people’s travel plans and decimated the tourism industry and airlines. The German government’s guidance on travel is ever-changing and often confusing, making business and leisure travel difficult at best. 
With a new coronavirus wave erupting in Germany, across Europe and in parts of the US, will we see more border closures and quarantine rules? Or can increased testing help save holidaymakers’ fall and winter plans?
Host Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson is joined by Volker Adams, the head of government affairs at the German Travel Association (DRV); Christian Tänzler, a spokesman for visitBerlin, the city’s official tourism service and Elizabeth Becker, an award-winning journalist and author of “Overbooked: The Exploding Business of Travel and Tourism.”
This show was produced by Sylvia Cunningham.
