Further restrictions for unvaccinated people from Monday

In Berlin, stricter Coronavirus safety measures are put in place for unvaccinated people as of today (November 15, 2021). In light of the rising number of Coronavirus infections and looming shortages in intensive care units, the Senate has decided to significantly expand the so-called 2G rule.

Only vaccinated and recovered persons will be allowed to enter places such as restaurants, cinemas, theaters, museums, galleries or concert venues. Access will not be granted to people who merely tested negative for Covid-19. This rule also applies to gymnasiums and swimming pools, leisure facilities such as saunas and thermal baths, and amusement venues such as arcades. Unvaccinated people are also no longer allowed into enclosed areas inside amusement parks, zoos and botanical gardens. The 2G rule also applies to hairdressers, beauty salons, gyms and dance studios.

These restrictions do not apply to those under the age of 18 or people who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons. For them, a proven negative Corona test will still suffice in the future. Previously, 2G restrictions were optional model applied in Berlin for restauranteurs and event organizers, for example. They could decide for themselves whether to allow vaccinated, recovered and tested persons to enter their premises, or allow access only to vaccinated and recovered persons, who then were not obligated to wear a face mask. For clubs and other dance events, 2G restrictions were already mandatory.
