Berlin – The Berlin Senate has drawn up a step-by-step plan for step-by-step relaxation when the 7-day incidence falls below 50 new cases per 100,000 inhabitants and week. As reported by the Tagesspiegel, the first easing should start even earlier.
Initially, groups of 10 children under the age of 12 should again be allowed to play outdoor sports together. This should also be possible if the incidence value is over 50. The gradual opening of daycare centers and schools should also continue.
The maximum number of ten people should remain.
Most relaxations come from an incidence value below 35
The re is then a curfew for the catering trade. In addition, outdoor events should be made possible as a “first entry”. It is also planned to loosen the ban on contact to a maximum of five people or two households – as well as reopening the solariums.
The same applies to the retail trade with access restrictions of ten square meters of sales area per customer, or 20 square meters per customer with a sales area of 800 square meters or more.
The next easing stage should take place when the incidence value reached remains “stable or falling” for 14 days and the reproduction factor does not exceed 0.8. This regulation differs from previous models.
The n theaters, opera and concert halls as well as cinemas with restricted access are also allowed to open. Cultural events can then also take place in the open air for up to 250 people, and in closed rooms for up to 150 people.
The n the openings for bars and clubs take hold
Other markets should then also take place again subject to conditions and with approval, the rules for gastronomy would be relaxed. In addition, tourist overnight stays should be possible again. Bars and pubs are also likely to reopen under certain conditions. If the R-value rises above 0.9, pubs have to close again.
The same rule applies to catering in hotels and guest houses.
The same applies to theaters, opera houses and cinemas with ventilation systems. Cultural events with 500 outside and 250 guests inside could then take place again.
Hygiene concept with limited people for clubs
The curfew would be lifted and restrictions on people in the catering trade relaxed.
In the last step, if the incidence remained stable or falling for another 14 days, the restrictions would almost completely disappear. Only indoor cultural events would have a maximum of 500 participants and clubs would still need a hygiene concept.
Dynamically, however, the regulations should also be based on other “assessment factors” such as the R-value, intensive care bed capacities and the prospective vaccination rate. It is unclear what exact influence the draft paper will have on the federal-state consultations next week. But since Berlin and Müller are currently chairing the Prime Minister’s Conference, the draft will presumably play an important role.
