Final relaxation in Dresden: These corona rules no longer apply from Wednesday

Dresden – For five working days, the incidence value was for Dresden below the critical grade of 100. What relief can the Dresden look forward to now?

First of all: Not all Corona rules will be repealed. Instead of the Infection Control Act, only the Saxon Corona Protection Regulation enters into force again.

Nevertheless, there is reason to be happy in the light of some solution. We have summarized the new rules in Dresden that apply from Wednesday for you:

Previously, members of a household were only allowed to meet with one other person.

Up to five people belonging to two households can now be together again in closed rooms. Up to ten people are allowed outside. Children up to 14 years do not count.

The exit restriction between kl. 22.00 and kl. 05.00 is no longer valid.

restaurants

Restaurants are allowed to welcome visitors back to their outdoor areas, the same goes for beer gardens. Before then, however, time must be booked and the contact information must be registered.

If people from several households are sitting at a table, they must be able to present a daily negative rapid test result. Equivalent to a negative test is evidence of having either recovered or been fully vaccinated.

Fitness centers are allowed to reopen, changing mask requirements on buses and trains

companies

Customer traffic is still prohibited in stores that do not offer everyday goods. The only alternative is Click & Meet – ie deals with an agreement and a negative test result. Supermarkets, pharmacies, drugstores, hardware stores and bookstores are not affected.

schools and day care centers

At Dresden’s schools and day care institutions, nothing is changing for the time being. The obligation to test remains. There are only exceptions for fully vaccinated teachers.

buses and trains

Surgical masks will again be allowed in public transportation. FFP2 masks are no longer required. Ordinary fabric masks are still taboo.

fitness centre

Sports centers are allowed to reopen from Wednesday. However, the operators must enable contactless training for visitors. In addition, a negative test result is required for each visit. Anyone who needs the sport for medical reasons does not need a test.

Relaxation in the cultural sector, tourism in Dresden remains problematic

Culture

Major festivals such as the colorful Republic of Neustadt remain banned. Even discos are not allowed to open yet.

Museums, libraries, galleries, exhibitions, cinemas, zoos, theaters, concert halls, etc. must reopen. However, prior agreement on time and submission of negative test results also applies here.

Fully vaccinated and newly recovered people do not need a test. Drive-in cinemas can be visited without these conditions.

tourism

Hotels and boarding houses are still covered by the ban on accommodation. They may only reopen if the weekly occurrence is less than 50. Conferences, fairs and congresses are also not possible for the time being.

weddings

A maximum of 20 people may attend weddings. If there are more than ten people, a negative test result is required. A minimum distance of 1.50 meters is still required. The same rules apply to funerals.

However, the new freedoms should not be taken too lightly: If the incidence is over 100 for three consecutive days, the corona rules must be tightened again.
