Further restrictions planned
The federal and state governments want to decide that tomorrow

Tomorrow, Thursday, the federal and state governments will meet to decide on the measures to break the fourth wave of corona. In the draft resolution, which ntv has before, speaks of an “act of national solidarity”. Above all, the rights of the unvaccinated are further restricted.

The federal and state governments want to agree on the following points:

  • An extended one Federal-state crisis team should deal with the problems of the vaccination campaign in the Chancellery. This included logistics and the distribution of the vaccine.
  • Everyone who decides to have a first vaccination or who needs a second or booster vaccination should be able to receive it by Christmas. The speech is there of up to 30 million vaccinations.
  • It should be expanded who is allowed to vaccinate. For example, doctors should be able to delegate vaccinations to pharmacists or nursing staff, for example in old people’s homes, at short notice. The group of authorized persons is to be permanently expanded to include dentists and pharmacists.
  • the Validity of the vaccination status should be shortened, that is, how long a fully immunized person is also considered vaccinated. It is still unclear how long this status will be shortened. The federal and state governments should agree on this by the end of the year.
  • For Facilities and events for cultural and leisure activities (for example cinemas, theaters and restaurants) incidence independent only vaccinated and convalescent people are admitted (2G rule). If necessary, a negative corona test may also be required (2Gplus).
  • Also in retail trade should only have access to vaccinated and convalescent people (2G). The shops should control access. Shops with goods for everyday use are excluded from the rule.
  • For Unvaccinated people should have strict contact restrictions are valid. Private get-togethers in public or private spaces, in which unvaccinated or unconcealed persons take part, should be limited to one’s own household as well as a maximum of two persons from another household. Children up to 14 years of age are exempt from the rule. The restrictions should not apply to private gatherings in which only the vaccinated and convalescent participate.
  • Large events are limited. However, there should not be ghost games in the Bundesliga. An upper limit is planned, which is a maximum of 10,000 people. An agreement on the exact amount is still pending. In principle, however, the 2G rule should apply. A negative test may also be necessary here.
  • Clubs and discos are to be closed in areas with a seven-day incidence above 350. An agreement on the exact level of the incidence is still pending.
  • In schools should Mask compulsory in all grade levels are valid.
  • The federal states should ensure that the measures are also monitored. This applies in particular to the vaccination status, which should be carried out using apps if possible.
  • One facility-related vaccination requirement for employees in geriatric care facilities and hospitals, for example, should be initiated by the federal government. Furthermore, the Bundestag should “promptly” based on group proposals on a general compulsory vaccination decide. It should then apply “as soon as it can be ensured that all those who want to be vaccinated can also be vaccinated promptly, ie from around February 2022”. The Ethics Council should develop a recommendation for this by the end of the year.

In addition, that should also German Infection Protection Act edited again. There is still no agreement on the exact measures. The transition period for protective measures that came into force before November 25th should continue to apply beyond December 15th. This would mean that some lockdowns would still be possible in regions with a particularly high incidence.

A scientific panel of experts, docked at the Chancellery, is to provide weekly advice and make further proposals in the fight against the pandemic.

Furthermore, an agreement is to be reached that the Bundestag will promptly pass a general compulsory vaccination decides. This should take effect as soon as it is ensured that all those willing to be vaccinated can also be vaccinated. The beginning of February 2022 is named as a possible date. By the end of the year, the Ethics Council should draw up a recommendation on this.

The federal and state governments expressly want to resolve that minimum requirements are met. In this way, federal states that have so far been less severely affected would also be able to “proactively relieve their health systems”. On the other hand, the catalog can be tightened by specific country rules.
