Status: 16/11/2021 18:11

In light of the rising coronatal, the Hamburg Senate has decided on stricter rules for public life. It also affects mass sports, where a 2G regulation will apply across the board in closed rooms from Saturday.

The red-green Senate eliminated the 3G model in a number of areas and instead made 2G mandatory. According to this, only those who have been vaccinated and those who have recovered are allowed to go to, for example, the gym or use the clubs’ indoor sports facilities. This is true wherever there is vigorous physical activity, said Hamburg Mayor Peter Tschentscher (SPD): “Wherever vigorous physical activity can lead to a lot of breathing work, too much aerosol formation, we want and need this 2G regulation now met. “

Minister Holstein: “Do not take vaccinated people hostage”

Minister of Sports Christoph Holstein also explained in the NDR interview: “We were more or less asked by the sport to introduce 2G.” This is intended to discourage discussions on the spot.

“Wise people have encouraged us to say: The number one protection is vaccination. And therefore, those who have been vaccinated or have recovered should be preferred over those who have not yet decided to get a vaccination,” the SPD stressed. the politician. “It can not be fitting that those who decided to get vaccinated, and who on our part act very responsibly, are now being held hostage by those who find it all exaggerated or something else.”

Exception for children and young people under 18 years of age

Unvaccinated personnel in the relevant areas must be tested daily. According to Tschentscher, children and young people under the age of 18 and persons who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons are exempt from the 2G obligation.

“We have to get up early enough for the coming weeks,” Tschentscher said. “This is now the step that is required and required.” Should the situation in the clinics, which is still eased in a nationwide comparison, worsen, the Senate will take a position on further measures, the mayor announced. Holstein stressed that it is up to everyone to prevent another level of austerity from becoming necessary.

Federal state consultations Thursday

The new rules in the Hanseatic city are a kind of intermediate step. For on Thursday, the federal and state governments will discuss measures to combat the pandemic at a prime ministerial conference.

The German Olympic Sports Federation (DOSB) called for the expected decisions from politicians a “movement guarantee”. “The error of the previous year, in which the extensive closure of playgrounds and sports facilities and the contact restrictions condemned the approximately 27 million members of sports clubs and all other people in Germany to immobility, should not be repeated,” said DOSB President Alfons Hörmann. For the umbrella organization of German sports, children and young people in particular should “be privileged in all circumstances”.
