Saxony dares to take the step forward

Region. If the new emergency ordinance were already in force in the Free State of Saxony today, some of the restrictions of recent months would probably no longer exist. The rules approved by the cabinet on Tuesday stipulate that open-air gatherings will no longer be subject to attendance limits if, for three consecutive days, the number of beds occupied by Covid 19 patients in the normal and intensive care units of Saxony’s hospitals falls below the known load limits of 1.300 and 420 respectively.

This is exactly the situation that currently exists in the state. At the beginning of the month, the Ministry of Social Affairs in Dresden recorded 419 Corona patients in normal wards and 154 in intensive care units- with different tendency. While the normal wards again experienced a steady influx in recent days, the intensive care areas, on the other hand, reported more and more vacant beds.

But not only the protest would be back on the ground of the Basic Law to some extent. In addition, after a long period of thirst, the unvaccinated are once again gaining access to retail outlets. However, under the current conditions, as the future regulation states, they need a certificate for this according to the 3G rule. The restriction on opening hours would also be dropped. In the catering trade, however, the 2G rule must continue to be observed, both inside and outside, according to a spokeswoman. Innkeepers could receive visitors differently than last possible but again at their own time discretion.

For cultural and recreational facilities as well as sporting events open to the public, the number of spectators would be limited to 50 percent of the maximum capacity or a maximum of 2.000 people or 25 percent of the total capacity.

For trade fairs, such a regulation would no longer apply and for non-tourist overnight stays, proof according to the 3G rule would again be sufficient.

People who attend a driving or boating school now only need proof of vaccination, convalescence or testing to take part in lessons instead of proof according to the 2G rule. Operators must ensure contact recording in addition to proof control. Travel agencies, insurance agencies and businesses in similar sectors can also open to the public independently of the infection event. The 2G rule applies and also the obligation to record contacts.

âFunerals and marriages may be attended by 50 people at a time.

What happens when hospitals are threatened with overload??

However, if there were renewed signs of a possible overload in the healthcare system, relaxations would be withdrawn. In that case, open-air gatherings would only be 5.000 participants would be allowed. Last time there was a maximum of 1.000.

Trade fairs and congresses can still be held, but visitors must show proof of admission under the 2Gplus rule. There is also a limit on visitor capacity based on the size of the event space: one visitor for every four square meters of space.

Recreational and cultural facilities can open regardless of hospital bed occupancy, subject to 2Gplus rule.

For events such as concerts, theater performances or sporting events with an audience, the number of spectators is limited to either 50 percent of the maximum capacity but a maximum of 500 visitors or 25 percent and a maximum of 1.000 persons limited.

For archives, libraries or even zoos, the previous regulations continue to apply.

Theaters and movie theaters will be allowed to remain open under 2Gplus even if infection levels rise and regardless of hospital bed occupancy rates.

In addition, the incidence-based hotspot regulation will be lifted. This means that the hospital will no longer have to close when the number of infections is high. Also removed were the incidence-based exit restrictions.

Schools and day-care centers should remain open under the known hygiene rules and protective measures. The ordinance adopted by the Cabinet for this purpose provides for restricted regular operation of the relevant facilities. Classes and groups, including staff, must be strictly segregated thereafter. In school buildings and whenever a minimum distance of one and a half meters cannot be maintained, masks are mandatory. Students in grades five and up are still required to wear an OP or FFP2 mask in class.

The bottom line is that the new regulation, which goes into effect next Sunday and will initially last until 6. March, continues to clarify the following: As before, persons who can present a certificate of recovery in conjunction with a full vaccination record will remain exempt from the testing requirement indefinitely. On the other hand, the age limit for persons who can replace a vaccination or convalescent certificate by means of a daily test will increase from the completed 16. to the completed 18. Year of life.

In the near future, the Ministry of Social Affairs will announce its future Corona emergency regulation announce on the net.
