In order to contain the pandemic, private gatherings with friends, relatives and acquaintances in Germany are limited to a maximum of five people from one’s own household and one other household. Children up to 14 years of age are not covered by the regulation. This was announced yesterday evening by German Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) after her consultations with the state premiers in Berlin.

The strict restrictions will be relaxed over Christmas, however. From December 23 to January 1, a maximum of ten people are allowed to meet; children up to 14 years of age are not covered by the regulation, as can be seen from the resolution paper of the federal and state governments.

It was also decided that the current partial lockdown will be extended until 20 December with the closure of restaurants, theaters, fitness studios and leisure facilities, among others.

In view of the continuing high infection figures, the Chancellor called for a further “effort” in the fight against the pandemic. At the top-level consultations, the federal and state governments in Germany had agreed that the current restrictions “at human discretion must apply until the beginning of January”, Merkel said. The restrictions in force since the beginning of November had so far only led to a “partial success” – “and we can by no means be satisfied with this partial success”.

A large-scale switch to “alternating teaching” is not planned in Germany, despite continuing high coronavirus numbers. Alternating instruction in divided groups at home and at school will continue to be decided locally, depending on regional figures.
