New corona rules are planned for Germany - an overview.

Berlin - The federal and state governments will discuss Germany's further strategy in the pandemic at the Corona summit on Friday.

The focus is on the Corona rules *, and several adjustments are planned.

These are necessary because the Omikron wave has already started, emphasized several responsible persons in the run-up to the summit.

Federal Minister of Health Karl Lauterbach * announced "new measures" in this regard.

"The members of the Federal Government's Expert Council on Covid-19 are assuming that the Omikron variant will also prevail in Germany and will soon be dominant across the board.

With the rapid spread of the variant, a significant increase in the 7-day incidence * can be expected again, which is already becoming apparent, ”says the draft resolution of the Corona summit, which our editorial team has received.

Corona rules: This is what the federal and state governments are planning at the corona summit

Changes to the corona rules mainly affect the quarantine regulation and the contact restrictions - an overview:

  • Quarantine:

    The general quarantine duration is to be reduced from a total of 14 days to ten days. In addition, there should be easing for those who have been boosted and those who have been vaccinated twice. Contact persons of infected people who have received the second or third corona vaccination should not have to go into isolation. The condition for this is that the second vaccination was less than three months ago.



    Simply vaccinated and symptom-free contact persons of infected people should be able to free themselves from the quarantine after seven days by means of a negative PCR test. Employees from systemically important occupational groups, on the other hand, should be able to end their quarantine after five days, provided a negative, certified antigen test can be presented.

  • Vaccination status:

    The Expert Council recommends an adjustment of the vaccination status.

    According to a report by the news magazine Spiegel, only those who have been boosted should be considered fully vaccinated.

  • Contact restrictions:

    According to Health Minister Lauterbach, new contact restrictions are required.

    He told ZDF on Wednesday evening: “We will probably have to improve again.” It is not yet known what exactly is to be changed as corona rules for the contact restrictions.

    Shortly before the start of the Corona summit, Saxony's Prime Minister Michael Kretschmer also took responsibility for those who had been vaccinated: “We are together in the same boat,” he told the newspapers of the Funke media group.

  • 2G Plus:

    In the future, access to restaurants should only be possible for vaccinated people with a negative test.

    The exception is boosted.

In the catering industry, the 2G-Plus model is to be introduced across the board as a corona rule.
