2G rule to take effect Nov. 17 at city events

From Wednesday, November 17, 2021, the 2G rule (vaccinated, recovered) will apply at municipal events in municipal premises for visitors* over the age of 18. This was decided by the Bonn city council due to the sharp rise in the number of corona cases. This includes, for example, concerts, theater/opera, events in the Old Town Hall, the Music School and the Adult Education Center.

Exceptions to the 2G rule apply to children up to the age of twelve, as they are regularly PCR-tested in their daycare centers and schools (the so-called Lolli test). Adolescents ages 12 to 18 require a test no more than 24 hours old to participate in city events.

According to the current Corona Test and Quarantine Ordinance of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, since Saturday, November 13, 2021, all persons can again be tested for Corona at least once a week free of charge in test centers.

"In view of the increasing numbers also here in Bonn, we should not lull ourselves into a false sense of security, but be cautious: We are in the middle of the fourth wave - and the increase in infections is worrying," says Mayor Katja Dörner. "For indoor events, the 2G rule brings greater security than the 3G rule, so I welcome the city government's decision. I appeal to the state government to enact 2G."

The 2G rule includes only recovered and vaccinated persons, while the 3G rule includes tested persons in addition to recovered and vaccinated persons.

People who wanted to attend city events only tested and have already purchased tickets for events starting Nov. 17, 2021, will have their admission fees refunded.
