Health senator Dilek Kalayci (SPD) had tuned the citizens of Berlin in last time already times for it. "The headline for all measures that can still come now is: Minimize contacts," Kalayci said on Monday in the health committee of the House of Representatives. She said that this could be done, for example, by limiting the number of contacts, by setting upper limits in the private sphere or by curfew hours.
The Senate is also discussing the nightly curfew that has been in effect for a good two weeks. This is based on a proposal by the economic administration for a regulation that is intended to make the measure more legally secure. Some innkeepers had filed a complaint against the curfew at the administrative court and were granted justice in the first instance.
On Saturday new restrictions due to the Corona pandemic had come into force in Berlin. There is now compulsory masking for markets and ten particularly busy streets in several districts, but also for shopping malls and queues. There are also stricter limits for private gatherings: Outside, for example, only 25 people are allowed to meet for a party instead of the previous 50; inside, instead of ten people, only members of a household plus a maximum of five other people are allowed.
