The Ministry of Health has presented the “relaxation ordinance” that will make public life a little more colorful in the Corona pandemic, starting Wednesday, May 19. A prerequisite for almost all activities from going to the inn to going to the gym is that the person either be tested, recovered or vaccinated. In addition, an FFP2 mask must be worn virtually everywhere except for sports and dining. It will all take place between 5 a.m. and 10 p.m., and registration is usually mandatory.

A prerequisite for access to events, restaurants and hotels, for example, is recovery, vaccination or negative Covid test result.

People are considered recovered if they have survived an illness during the past six months. An antibody test no older than three months is also accepted as proof. Otherwise, one can present, for example, the segregation certificate.

PCR tests are accepted for 72 hours, professionally taken antigen tests for 48 hours, and self-tests recorded in an official data processing system for 24 hours. On-site self-tests may also be offered, but are only valid for the visit itself.

Vaccinations are valid from the 22nd day after the first immunization until a maximum of three months. This means that anyone who forgoes the second sting must go back for testing. After the second vaccination, there is no need to test for nine months.

PRIVATE
Private meetings are allowed during the day (5am-2pm) outdoors with ten people from different households with ten (minor) children. Indoors, only four people plus six children are allowed to gather. The latter rule also applies during nighttime hours. However, this part of the ordinance is limited until mid-June. Most other rules would not expire until early July if they are not changed by then.

WORKPLACE
An FFP2 mask must be worn in the workplace if infection cannot otherwise be prevented, such as by using Plexiglas. In addition, the two-meter distance rule applies.

There are stricter rules for teachers, workers in the field of warehouse logistics, people with customer contact (also party traffic), for whom the 3G rule is applied. If tests are used, they must be performed once a week. Kindergarten teachers are spared the FFP2 mask if they are either tested, vaccinated or recovered.

GASTRONOMY
Restaurants may once again receive guests, but there must be a distance of two meters between groups of visitors. In addition, a maximum of four people plus six children may be seated at a table indoors. In the guest garden it is ten plus ten. Masks must be worn except at the serving area. Consumption is allowed only at the table and sitting. The exception is snack bars, where it is also possible to eat and drink at a standing table. Self-service is possible if safety precautions are observed. Contact data, name, address, telephone/e-mail and length of stay must be collected if the guest stays for more than 15 minutes. This data may not be further processed but only made available to the health authorities if required.

TOURISM
A negative test, recovery or vaccination is required to enter a tourist accommodation. Proof must be kept throughout the vacation. Vacation camps are allowed for up to 50 people. Masks are mandatory in the building and two-meter clearance rule. No covering of mouth and nose is required only during sports, for example in fitness rooms, and in wet rooms.

EVENTS
Events are again permitted, with a maximum of 1,500 people allowed indoors and 3,000 outdoors. If there are no assigned seats, only up to 50 people may be admitted. Another restriction on events is that two meters of space must be maintained between people who are not from the same household or, where this is not possible, at least one seat must be left free between people. Gastronomy is allowed.

Holding fairs and exhibitions is also allowed again, with 20 square meters per person. In addition, indoor masks must be worn and registration is mandatory, as in the entire event area. Funerals will once again be allowed with no limit on numbers.

RECREATION
In recreational facilities ranging from indoor playgrounds to swimming pools, visitors may only be admitted if they are vaccinated, tested or recovered and registered. In enclosed spaces, masks are compulsory, and a two-meter distance must also be maintained, which is likely to be difficult to comply with, at least in the facilities for the practice of prostitution, which are also listed in the ordinance.

SPORT
Sport can also be practiced indoors again. The prerequisite here is the 3G rule plus registration. Furthermore, masks are mandatory except during sports and in the shower. The two-meter distance can be undercut if the sport requires it.

OLD PEOPLE’S HOMES/HOSPITALS
In old people’s homes and nursing homes, three visitors per patient per day are permitted. The 3G rule applies here as well. In hospitals, one visitor per patient is allowed. Exceptions are made in each case in the palliative care area.

TRANSPORTATION
In means of mass transportation, masks must continue to be worn and – as far as possible – a two-meter distance must be maintained. In cabs, only two people may sit in a row. This rule may be waived for schoolchildren and disabled passengers. In cable cars, a maximum of 50 percent of the capacity may still be used.

TRADE/FRISEUR
For the time being, there will be no fundamental changes to the rules already in force for retailers and personal service providers. This means that in stores there must be 20 square meters of space for each customer, and an FFP2 mask must also be worn. At the hairdresser or beauty salon is new that in addition to the test also counts vaccination or recovery.
