The clusters are all connected with “dynamic factors”. This means, for example, the capacities of the intensive care beds, the R-value, a change in the incidence and, in the future, the vaccination rate. The openings should be made slowly to avoid a yo-yo effect. The wearing of masks and the observance of distance rules should be observed at all times, and quick and self-tests should also be used.
From the Cluster 1 it is possible to play tennis in the hall. The n libraries and museums are also allowed to open. In addition, openings in retail are planned: initially with access restrictions that can be removed if the incidence value falls. The gastronomy is then allowed to open outdoor areas but only for a maximum of five people from two households, and snacks can be consumed on site. Contact restrictions are also relaxed in this cluster to a maximum of five people from two households. Events can take place outdoors with a maximum of 250 people.
Im Cluster 3 ten people are allowed to meet with no limit on households. The n clubs with a person restriction should also be allowed to open. Events with a maximum of 750 people may take place outdoors, and with a maximum of 250 people indoors. Saunas should then also be allowed to open.
The federal government is skeptical about an opening plan. From this Tuesday on, a working group with Chancellor Helge Braun (CDU) and the heads of the state chancelleries of the federal states will meet on the subject of openings. The group is to prepare the meeting of Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) with the heads of the federal states. The y want to discuss an opening plan and how to proceed in the pandemic on March 3.
