2G-plus in gastronomy, FFP2 masks: These new corona rules will apply in Berlin from Saturday


Berlin is currently particularly badly affected by the omicron wave – thousands of infections are reported every day. Stricter rules should help bring the numbers back under control. From this Saturday, stricter measures will take effect again in Berlin.

The people in Berlin have to adjust to stricter corona rules again. From this Saturday onwards, stricter access rules for restaurants, pubs and cafés will apply. According to a decision by the Berlin Senate on Tuesday, the 2G plus rule applies in gastronomy and other areas. 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.
Berlin is still the federal state with the second highest corona numbers. In the past seven days, 949.8 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants were registered, as the health administration announced on Friday. A week ago the value was 511.5. According to the Robert Koch Institute, this so-called seven-day incidence is only higher in Bremen. Data from Marzahn-Hellersdorf are not included in the Berlin figures. The district did not transmit any data due to a technical fault, it said. In the meantime, hospital admissions are also increasing significantly. For every 100,000 people in Berlin, 11.2 were hospitalized with Covid-19, compared to 3.8 a week ago. This means that two of the three traffic lights in the Senate’s warning system are red. The occupancy of the intensive care beds, on the other hand, rose only slightly in a weekly comparison. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, 388,590 people in the city have been infected, more than one in ten residents. A good three quarters of Berliners have now been vaccinated against Covid-19 at least once. 73.2 percent are considered to have been vaccinated twice, and 46.2 percent have already received a booster vaccination (all figures as of January 14).
