The 3G rule generally applies to all events that take place indoors. For open-air events, the 3G rule applies to gatherings of 5,000 visitors and up, or if minimum distances cannot be adhered to. As a matter of principle, organizers must draw up a hygiene concept. If there are more than 5,000 participants, this concept must be presented to and approved by the health department before the event. Berlin and the State of Hesse have also published new regulations. In Hesse, however, a few details still need to be taken into account from certain incidence levels.
The new COVID-19 protection regulations will apply provisionally until September 13 in Baden-Württemberg, September 16 in Hesse and until September 17, 2021 in Berlin and North Rhine-Westphalia. VOK DAMS is confident that there will be no further tightening of rules shortly before the upcoming general election end of September 2021.
