City adjusts access rules to sports and cultural facilities

The City of Bonn is adapting the access regulations to its cultural and sports facilities to the current NRW Corona Protection Ordinance. This was decided by the crisis management team on Thursday, November 25, 2021.

With immediate effect, only immunized persons over the age of 16 have access to cultural institutions, sports halls, swimming pools and sports fields; the 2G rule (vaccinated, recovered) therefore applies to them. Children and adolescents under the age of 16 are considered students and do not require proof of testing or a school certificate. Persons who have a doctor's certificate stating that they cannot be vaccinated against Corona for health reasons need a current negative test. A rapid test must not be older than 24 hours, a PCR test not older than 48 hours.

In sports, an exception applies: for participants in professional leagues, test evidence based on PCR testing is sufficient as a transitional substitute for immunization. In school sports (including school swimming), there are no restrictions for students* as they are tested in class. According to the Corona Protection Ordinance, sports clubs are obliged to check proof of immunization or testing upon entry to sports facilities and swimming pools.
