Berlin updates Covid rules on who can visit public places — RT World News
To slow the increase in winter-related infections, Covid-19 will be outlawed in Berlin.
In a press release on Wednesday evening, the Berlin senate said it would be introducing a system known as “2G” – a protocol that makes it mandatory for people to be vaccinated, have recovered from the virus, or have tested negative in the past 24 hours, before entering certain venues.
Indoor dining, bars and gyms, hairdressers as well as other leisure venues across the city will be affected by this edict. Theatres, museums, and outdoor events with over 2,000 people will be exempted.
For those below 18 years of age or who are not vaccinated, the 2G rules do not apply. The latter need to submit a negative result and prove that they are not vaccinated.
These new rules were created in response to “the rising number of coronavirus cases and the increasing pressure on intensive care units,”The Berlin senator made the statement in a statement.
Employers are encouraged to have their employees work from home. Workplaces shouldn’t be more than 50% capacity. It also states that staff at hospitals close to patients should be tested, vaccinated and recovered daily.
For the first two weeks, 2G regulations will be in effect. They will continue until November 28.
The Robert Koch Institute reports that Germany had more than 50,000. This was the highest number of cases in Germany for a single day.
