The coalition factions of the SPD, the Greens and the Left as well as the CDU voted in favour of a corresponding motion of the Senate on Tuesday (21 December 2021). The AfD voted against, the FDP abstained. The Senate can now decide on for instance new restrictions if the infection situation requires it.
The new health senator Ulrike Gote (Greens) had previously made it clear in the plenum that this could definitely be expected because of the Omikron variant of the coronavirus - possibly before Christmas. "Omikron changes almost everything we have heard about the pandemic so far," she said.
