Cafés and restaurants: Outdoor gastronomy could open at Whitsun

In Berlin, cafés and restaurants are to be allowed to reopen their outdoor areas at Whitsun. The prerequisite is that the seven-day incidence is then stably below 100.

The Senate agreed on this at its meeting on Tuesday, as Berlin's Governing Mayor Michael Müller subsequently announced. Guests must have a negative corona test. People with full vaccination protection and convalescents are treated equally. Müller pointed out that the opening steps will be coordinated with Brandenburg at Whitsun. According to federal law, the threshold of 100 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants must be fallen below for five consecutive working days within seven days before relaxations are possible. On Monday, the value was still above the 100 mark, on Tuesday it was 93.7.
