Stuttgart (dpa) – In Baden-Württemberg, the corona measures will be tightened again immediately after the Christmas days. The green-black state government only wants to relax the contact restrictions from December 23 to 27, a government spokesman confirmed to the German press agency on Monday. Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann (Greens) agreed on this with his cabinet colleagues. Over the Christmas days, however, hotel stays for family visits in Baden-Württemberg are to be made possible.
The corona measures will be tightened nationwide in December – except during Christmas time. Last week, the federal and state governments agreed on an upper limit of ten people plus children up to 14 years of age for meetings “with the closest family or friends” from December 23 to January 1. This period was too long for Kretschmann. The state government wants to announce the new rules on Monday. According to the State Ministry, the new ordinance will come into force on Tuesday.
In Berlin, too, the Senate decided not to implement the loosening of the contact restrictions for private meetings over the holidays in Berlin agreed by the federal and state governments.
