Shopping should then be possible with pre-booked appointments ("Click & Meet"). The Senate agreed on this on 4 March 2021 and thus, as expected, implemented the corresponding agreement on the Corona pandemic reached by the federal and state governments on Wednesday, as participants reported. If the Corona incidence value of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants remains below 100 within a week, shops will be allowed to let in a limited number of customers for shopping, depending on the size of the shop. However, appointments must be booked in advance via the internet.
