The state government of Baden-Württemberg wants to dare small and cautious opening steps with an adjustment of the Corona Ordinance. These are three important changes, which are to come into force on February 9. The three changes concern the areas of data collection, the number of spectators at events and the access regulations in retail.
Extensive repeal of the requirements for data collection
The aim is to ease the burden on operators and event organizers in this respect. For this reason, the current regulations on data collection are to be lifted as far as possible. Only in areas where there is a high risk of infection (e.g. discotheques) will data processing continue. On this point, the state government also continues to recommend the use of the Corona warning app.
Events with more spectators
In Baden-Württemberg, the amendment in the ordinance raises the upper limit of persons at events in alert level I.
- A capacity restriction of 50 percent applies in each case.
- For 2G: 2,000 people (previously 1,500), at a maximum of 50 percent capacity utilization.
- Vei 2G+: 4,000 people (previously 3,000), at a maximum utilization of 50 percent.
- For 2G: 5,000 people (previously 3,000), at a maximum utilization rate of 50 percent.
- For 2G+: 10,000 people (previously 6,000), at a maximum utilization rate of 50 percent.
- If there are more than 500 spectators, fixed seating/standing areas must be allocated. A maximum of ten percent of the seats may be standing room. (unchanged)
- For city and folk festivals, the FFP2 mask requirement also applies outdoors, as well as in alert level I additionally a visitor cap of 50 percent but not more than:
- at 2G: maximum 5,000 visitors (previously 3,000)
- with 2G+: maximum 10,000 visitors* (previously 6,000)
3G regulation lifted at retail level in Alert I
The FFP2 mask requirement remains, but in Alert Level I, the 3G retail access restriction no longer applies.
