Two federal states are tightening the corona rules: In Hesse and Lower Saxony, supermarkets are allowed to decide whether they can only shop for those who have been vaccinated and those who have recovered.



Two federal states are tightening the corona rules: In Hesse and Lower Saxony, supermarkets are allowed to decide whether they can only shop for those who have been vaccinated and those who have recovered.

Munich - recovered or vaccinated - the so-called 2G rule is a benchmark with regard to the coronavirus that now applies in many places.

In some places in bars or clubs, sometimes in cinemas or other rooms for events.

Corona: Hesse and Lower Saxony introduce 2G rule for supermarkets

Two federal states are now going one step further.

Specifically: Hesse and Lower Saxony give supermarkets the opportunity to decide whether they only want to shop for people who have been vaccinated against Corona or those who have recovered from the virus.

This means that the 2G rule can also apply when shopping.

And consumers have to adjust to it.

Hesse's Prime Minister Volker Bouffier announced the new rule in mid-October.

And at the request of the industry, it says on the part of politics.

There are restrictions: "We assume that this option will only be used on a daily basis and that businesses for everyday needs will not make use of it," it said in a press release.

In Lower Saxony, too, retailers and supermarkets are allowed to decide whether to apply the 2G rule to themselves - and to require proof of vaccination or proof of recovery from an infection with the coronavirus.

The Ministry of Economics from Hanover explained this to the

editorial network in Germany

.

However, the trade association let the same medium know that it is not assumed that many traders will also apply the 2G rule to themselves.

Corona: 2G rule in supermarkets - are other federal states following suit?

In this case, even a negative PCR test is no longer sufficient to gain access.

To classify: In contrast to the 2G rule, the 3G rule states that negative corona tests are also sufficient.

The 2G rule has been causing discussions for months.

For example, the FDP had criticized an alleged “mandatory vaccination through the back door”.

In Nuremberg, a landlord had also introduced the 2G regulation in his restaurant with a view to Corona - and had received a lot of shitstorm on the Internet for it.

Are other federal states like North Rhine-Westphalia now also following the supermarkets?
