    Funerals: relaxation for the unvaccinated

    The adapted Corona regulation also brings with it some loosening. This is how the shortened quarantine decided by the federal and state governments is implemented. In addition, the rules for secular funerals are less strict: For the unvaccinated, there is an exception to the restriction to meetings with a maximum of two people from another household. “Funerals, even if they are not religious in character, are privileged so that people can say goodbye to the dead and mourn together with the appropriate precautions,” said government spokeswoman Poerksen. But that only applies to the official funeral service and the walk to the grave, not for a subsequent get-together, for example in a restaurant or café. According to Poerksen, the 3G rule applies to non-religious funeral services, so that vaccinated, recovered or tested people can take part.
