Coronavirus Loosening Bavaria Is Also Opening Again

Coronavirus Update In Bavaria

Coronavirus Update In Bavaria:


Now Bavaria has also announced easing - step by step, but comprehensive: The exit restrictions will be lifted, little by little restaurants should open again. There are similar decisions in other federal states.

Until now, it was rather northern Germany that went ahead with easing the anti-corona measures - now Bavaria, which has been badly affected by the pandemic, is also following suit.

The cabinet decided to gradually and widely relax the strict restrictions. In this way, the existing exit restrictions are lifted - but certain contact restrictions and a ban on gathering people in public spaces remain.

From Wednesday it is allowed to meet or visit a person outside of your household and close family members.

There is now a concrete perspective for hotels and restaurants as well: They may gradually reopen before Pentecost.

For outdoor areas of restaurants - including beer gardens - this applies from May 18, for indoor restaurants from May 25, for hotels from May 30.

As of next Monday, all stores will be allowed to open again, including the larger ones. The previous restriction to a sales area of ​​a maximum of 800 square meters no longer applies.

Kita openings still unclear:


Also starting on Monday, the schools will gradually reopen for more and more classes.

On May 11th, the classes who are going to graduate next year and the fourth graders at primary schools should be allowed to return to the schools.

After the Pentecost holidays in mid-June, there will be face-to-face classes for all students and all ages. Graduating classes have been allowed to attend school again since the end of April.


It is still unclear when all kindergartens and daycare centres will open again. From next Monday, however, certain childcare facilities may reopen.

Playgrounds may be released in Bavaria again this Wednesday, and zoos, botanical gardens, museums, libraries, galleries, exhibitions and memorials can reopen from Monday.

The strict corona-related ban on visits to hospitals and care facilities is relaxed. From next Monday, certain contactless individual sports should also be allowed again - such as tennis, athletics, golf and sailing.

According to Söder, only around 6400 people are currently suffering from the coronavirus in Bavaria. Alone in comparison to last week, the number of sufferers halved.

The Bavarian concept was agreed with Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) and Baden-Württemberg Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann (Greens).

Relaxation also in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania:


It had previously been announced that Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania also wanted to loosen the measures: The tourist country also reopened its restaurants and ended the multi-week entry ban for foreign tourists before Pentecost.

"The easing in the past 14 days has worked well, the infection situation remains stable," said Prime Minister Manuela Schwesig (SPD).

From Saturday to Saturday from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., the restaurants in the country should be open to locals under strict hygiene requirements and with a maximum of six adults per table.

Waiters and service staff should wear masks, but guests should not. On May 18, hotels, pensions and holiday apartments are also to be opened for locals, and on May 25, the entry ban for tourists from other federal states, which has been in force since mid-March, will be lifted.

This would make it possible for all German citizens to miss the Pentecost holiday missed at the end of May on the Baltic Sea or in the Mecklenburg Lake District. The hotels are initially only allowed to rent a maximum of 60 per cent of their bed capacity.

Hamburg opens playgrounds:


The Hamburg Senate also decided to ease the situation further. For example, playgrounds may reopen on Wednesday, as Mayor Peter Tschentscher (SPD) said.

Services and visits to museums, zoos and botanical gardens are then possible again. The Senate is thus implementing the agreements made by the federal and state governments from the past week.

There is relaxation in individual sports, but the contact restrictions in public life remain largely in place for the time being.

Restaurants and pubs remain closed. Tschentscher had previously promoted further joint action by the federal and state governments.

Meeting of the federal and state governments:


Tomorrow Chancellor Angela Merkel and the prime ministers of the countries will meet again. Kita, school and sports are the focus of the consultations, the gastronomy should be given a perspective.

Several federal states have already advanced with easing measures that go beyond the previous agreements between the federal and state governments.

Saxony-Anhalt and Lower Saxony have also announced that they will ease contact restrictions. The Prime Minister of Lower Saxony Stephan Weil advocated a nationwide concept in the daily topics.

Is the upper limit decisive for new infections?


Meanwhile, Chancellor Minister Helge Braun (CDU) had discussed with the federal states.

According to this, the federal government wants to further loosen the requirements of an upper limit for new infections: restrictions on the easing should be withdrawn if a district has more than 35 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days.

This county would then have to return to the strict conditions that were in force until April 20.

This would mean that facilities that opened after this deadline would have to close again - such as schools, hairdressing salons and parts of the retail trade. Exit and contact restrictions would come back into effect.

This should not apply if the infections only occur in one place - for example in a retirement home. The Federal Chancellery has so far not wanted to confirm or deny the report.
