“Normal” daily life will soon come in handy in many regions of Baden-Württemberg: from next Monday, June 28, a new regulation on the coronavirus will apply in Baden-Württemberg. The state government has adapted and simplified the changes to a more relaxed infection process, according to a statement from the state department Friday night.
Above all, regions with an incidence of 10 can look forward to far-reaching relief: among other things, it will again be possible to hold private meetings with up to 25 people from any number of households. Clubs are also allowed to open.
This is also good news for the fan-like city: in the Karlsruhe region, the 7-day infection rate on Friday evening was 1.6, in the region currently 3.4.
A large number of leisure and shopping activities have been relaxed even earlier: in sports and in cultural institutions such as museums and libraries as well as in retail, all restrictions are lifted when less than 35 occur. This also includes swimming pools and amusement parks.
“Clear limits in case of increasing numbers”
The four levels of infection at a glance:
- Occurrence level 1 is when the seven-day incidence in a city or region reaches a value of no more than 10
- Incidence level 2 is when the seven-day incidence in a city or region reaches a value above 10 and at most 35
- Incidence level 3 is when the seven-day incidence in a city or region reaches a value above 35 and 50 at most
- Incidence level 4 is when the seven-day incidence in a city or region reaches a value above 50
The new infection levels, on the one hand, are the result of a “positive development of infection”, and on the other hand they aim to draw clear boundaries in case the number of infections increases again.
If a city or region exceeds its threshold on five consecutive days, the slots will be automatically withdrawn, according to the state department.
AHA rules still apply
Mask requirements and distance rule In principle, in closed rooms such as supermarkets, doctors’ clinics, public buildings, public transportation and closed stations such as train station buildings, the mask requirement still applies. The general rules for maintaining a distance of 1.5 meters in public places and facilities accessible to the public also continue to apply.
