From March 20, according to the will of Germany’s federal and state governments, a large part of the Corona restrictions will no longer apply. German Chancellor Olaf Scholz spoke of an “exceptional day” in the pandemic. The peak of the Omicron wave has now been reached. With the measures taken by the federal and state governments, he said, health and life have been protected, and a lockdown has been prevented.
The German step-by-step plan is to drop contact restrictions for vaccinated and convalescents and 2G rules in retail. Then, on March 4, a 3G rule (vaccinated, recovered, tested) is to reapply to restaurants and hotels. Discotheques and bars with a 2G-plus rule should reopen then, and new caps for significant events should apply. The maximum limit for outdoor events is to be raised to 25,000 visitors and indoor events to 6,000, or a maximum occupancy rate of 60 percent.
Then, starting March 20, all severe Corona restrictions would be dropped “if the hospital situation permits,” the resolution says.
