The easing of the epidemiologic situation means that some protective measures may be relaxed as of April 16th. The 2nd COVID-19 Basic Measures Regulation will go into effect on that date and will remain in effect for the time being until July 8.
The FFP2 mask requirement now applies only in enclosed spaces of:
Hospitals, nursing homes and similar settings, public transportation and its stops, and cabs, customer areas of vital commerce, administrative offices when parties are in session, and facilities for religious worship, unless they are entered for the purpose of a religious gathering such as a mass. Wearing FFP2 masks in all enclosed spaces is still recommended.
3-G evidence must now only be provided by visitors, employees and service providers in hospitals, nursing homes and similar settings.
The validity period of vaccination certificates for another vaccination (3rd vaccination) was extended to 365 days.
