No more contact restrictions for vaccinated persons
Also the changes that Prime Minister Söder has announced in advance restrictions on private contact has put the Bavarian cabinet on the road: For vaccinated and healthy people, they are completely left out because, according to Söder, they are “no longer appropriate and necessary”. So far, a maximum of ten vaccinated people have been allowed to meet at the same time in the Free State, children under 14 not included.
The relief does not apply to people without corona vaccination protection: “The contact restrictions for the unvaccinated remain unchanged,” the cabinet report said. As soon as there is at all one unvaccinated person, a household in Bavaria can only meet with a maximum of two members of another household. Again, children under 14 do not count.

Solve now: No more regional shutdowns
In line with the move away from the incidence values as a guideline, the Bavarian cabinet has decided to abolish the hotspot regulation, which has only been suspended so far. Consequently, it is in Bavarian regions with an incidence value of over 1,000 no more regional shutdowns give. According to the Bavarian hotspot rule, a regional lockdown should have been imposed on the relevant districts – but the rule was suspended in mid-January.
And people who can not be vaccinated?
For persons who for medical reasons cannot be vaccinated and who can prove this with a written medical certificate, a negative test is still sufficient for access under 2G.

The maximum number of participants depends on how many people can be admitted, as long as the minimum distance of 1.5 meters can be observed. If the parish or denomination voluntarily decides on the 3G rule, the upper limit for persons does not apply.

There will be a round table round in February. So far, there has been no “final clarity”, Aiwanger explained. But he stressed: “I firmly believe that we can realize these festivals.” Right now, folk festivals and annual markets in Bavaria are still banned.
Söder: “Hoping for another spring”
Bavarian Prime Minister Söder justified the recent easing by saying that the trend in new infections has been “slightly declining” for days. Hospital numbers are largely stable, the omicron variant “de facto simply much less dangerous”. The “gradual entry into the exit” is therefore “not a risk”. The Prime Minister was optimistic: “There is reason to hope for a different spring and summer.”

Christina Haubrich, health policy spokeswoman for the Greens in the state parliament, had after the government meeting on Tuesday criticized the timing of the decision on BR24live. The fact that the Bavarian cabinet had already made decisions before the current federal consultations created a “rule chaos”.
