Incidence level 2 rules to take effect Friday

As of Wednesday, August 11, 2021, the 7-day incidence in Bonn is 50.4 and thus above 35 for the eighth calendar day in a row. According to the Corona Protection Ordinance of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia and official announcement by the NRW Ministry of Health, incidence level 2 will thus come into force in Bonn on Friday, August 13, 2021.

This is accompanied by stricter regulations in various areas.

Stricter contact restrictions

For example, contacts without restrictions on persons in public areas are now only permitted for persons from up to three households (plus immunized persons from other households). Without a limit on households, ten persons (plus immunized persons) are still allowed to meet. In the case of a gathering of only immunized persons, the number of persons or households is not limited.

In many cases 3G proof is necessary

Visiting outdoor catering is still allowed without test proof. Indoor dining and use of many recreational facilities again require 3G proof (either vaccinated, recovered or tested). These include swimming pools, saunas, indoor playgrounds, miniature golf courses, high ropes courses, climbing parks, casinos, excursion boats, carriages or historic railroads. The operation of clubs and discotheques as well as brothels and swingers' clubs is no longer permitted.

In retail, only one person per ten square meters of retail space is allowed for the first 800 square meters of space, and one person per 20 square meters of space beyond that.

Restrictions also for sports and culture

Contact sports are now only permitted with up to 25 people outside, and up to twelve people inside. Immunized persons are not counted. Non-contact sports will continue to be allowed outside with no person limit, inside with a minimum distance and person limit. Negative test proof is also required for sports, as well as traceability.

For cultural events, the following applies: events outside and inside as well as performances in theaters, operas and cinemas are possible with up to 500 persons, negative test, fixed seating according to the checkerboard pattern. Again, immunized persons are not counted.
