Stricter corona rules will apply in Berlin from Saturday

According to a decision by the Berlin Senate on Tuesday, the 2G plus rule applies. This means that only those who have been boosted or who have been vaccinated twice and those who have recovered with a negative test result have access. This also applies to events with ten or more participants, for example in the cultural, leisure and sports sectors. Children under the age of 14 are excluded. In implementing the 2G plus rule, Berlin is going beyond the agreement reached by the federal and state governments a week ago on Friday, which was limited to the catering industry. The Senate justified this, among other things, with the aim of wanting to take uniform and understandable measures.

In addition, a stricter mask requirement on buses and trains will come into force on Saturday: Wearing an FFP2 mask is now generally mandatory in local public transport. The somewhat thinner so-called surgical masks are no longer sufficient. The new quarantine measures that the federal and state governments had agreed on have been in effect in Berlin since Friday. After that, there is no quarantine for boosted contact persons, i.e. persons with full vaccination protection and booster vaccination. It also does not apply to newly vaccinated and recovered people if the illness or the vaccination was less than three months ago. For everyone else, the quarantine or isolation ends after ten days. It can be ended prematurely after just seven days with a negative rapid test or PCR test. © dpa-infocom, dpa:220114-99-713562/3
