On Wednesday, the federal government presented a “phased plan” for Corona protections. This depends on the occupancy of intensive care units and will apply from September 15.

New Corona rules to take effect Sept. 15
The first steps of the Corona step-by-step plan will already be put in place from September 15, including a tightening of the mask requirement. The following is an overview of the details.

Corona stage plan from September 15 in detail

STEP 1:

Beginning Sept. 15 or 10 percent occupancy (200 beds), the FFP2 mask requirement will be reinstated wherever mouth-to-nose protection is currently required (stores or daily service providers, public transportation). In addition, there is a recommendation to other retailers to make FFP2 mandatory. Unvaccinated persons, on the other hand, will be obligated to wear the more effective masks, which will be monitored by the police on a random basis.

In addition, there will be tighter controls on the measures in force. The well-known 3G rule will then already apply to events with 25 or more people (up to now with 100 or more people). And antigen tests will only be valid for 24 hours (instead of 48 hours) – pupils are not affected by this federal requirement: for them, the thrice-weekly school tests (“Ninja Pass”) will continue to suffice.

STEP TWO:

Seven days after an intensive care unit occupancy rate of 15 percent (300 beds) is exceeded, a 2G rule will apply in overnight dining (and “similar settings”) and at events without assigned seating with more than 500 people, meaning only those vaccinated or recovering will be allowed entry. In addition, self-acceptance antigen tests (“living room tests”) will then no longer be valid as proof for areas with a 3G entry rule. Health Minister Wolfgang Mückstein (Green Party) expects this threshold to be reached in early October.

STEP 3:

If the occupancy rate reaches 20 percent (400 beds), a further tightening will come into effect seven days later: in areas with “3G” the antigen test will then lose its validity altogether. This means that only vaccinated persons, people who have recovered, or persons with a current PCR test would be allowed to enter.
