Distance requirement

It is recommended to keep a minimum distance of 1.50 meters between each other. If this cannot be observed, it is recommended to wear a mask. The state government advises wearing a mask indoors whenever people from more than one household are present.

Alcohol in public

There are no Corona restrictions on serving or consuming alcohol in state government regulations.

Fishing

Fishing is allowed.

Doctor

Those who go to the doctor must observe the hygiene rules for facilities with public traffic. In addition, patients should call in advance and ask for an appointment. This is especially true if Covid 19 disease is suspected. Practices must provide a QR code for registration with the RKI’s Corona warning app as an offer. Registration is voluntary.

Funerals

In enclosed spaces, no more than half of the seats may be occupied. Seating in close proximity (front, back, next to) to a participant may not be occupied or may only be occupied by a nearby person. Masks are compulsory, only the speaker may remove the mask.

Outside enclosed spaces with more than 100 people present at one time, everyone must wear a mask – again, with the exception of the speaker.

Seating arrangement requirements do not apply if only persons who are either fully vaccinated or recovered are attending (2G rule). Also, these individuals must not have typical coronavirus symptoms. Exceptions apply to minors, among others. There is no general limit on the number of attendees. Funeral services at cemeteries and funeral homes include the actual ceremony, but not any hospitality afterward.

Libraries/Archives

In libraries and archives, the 2G rule does not apply to indoor areas of cultural facilities. Even negatively tested persons may enter libraries and archives. However, all visitors must wear a mask. Facilities must provide a QR code for registration with the RKI’s Corona warning app as an offer. Registration is voluntary.

Educational offers

For non-school educational services – such as driving schools or music schools – the rules for events apply, i.e. 2G in enclosed spaces. 3G only applies in exceptional areas: in educational offers of vocational training and further education, literacy courses, preparatory courses for obtaining school-leaving qualifications, integration courses, professional language courses, initial orientation courses, starter package for refugees courses as well as in educational offers of health and nursing schools.

Children up to school enrollment and underage students who are regularly tested at school are exempt from this requirement. People who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons can get the service by presenting a doctor’s certificate and a negative test.

Exceptions for customers are hairdressers (where 3G and masking are mandatory for people who are neither vaccinated nor recovered) and medically or nursing necessary services (z.B. Physiotherapy, optician or midwife services, where a mask obligation applies only to people who are neither vaccinated nor recovered).

Hospitalization incidence / hospitalization rate

The value indicates how many out of 100.000 people tested positive for Corona in the past seven days and were admitted to a clinic. It is now increasingly used as the basis for corona restrictions.

Dog training

The training of dogs is possible.

Hygiene measures

The German Federal Center for Health Education has defined hygiene measures to contain the spread of Covid-19. This includes especially.

  • . To wash hands regularly and thoroughly.
  • . to maintain cough and sneeze hygiene.
  • . not to touch their mouth, nose and eyes.
  • . to ventilate sufficiently.
  • . good household hygiene with standard household detergents and cleaning agents containing surfactants. The routine use of disinfectants is not recommended.

Incidence value

The incidence value indicates the number of new corona infections per 100.000 residents within seven days of. Incidence has long been the basis for many Corona restrictions during the pandemic, such as under the federal emergency brake that expired at the end of June. In the meantime, other values such as hospital admissions are also taken into account to a greater extent.

Isolation, self-contained (quarantine)

Persons with a positive rapid test must immediately go into domestic isolation – regardless of whether they are vaccinated, recovered or unvaccinated. In case of positive results from self-tests or antigen tests in a test center, a PCR test must be made – for this purpose, the isolation may be left for a short time (Without using public transport). If PCR test is negative, isolation can be stopped immediately. Otherwise, isolation is for a period of ten days, but may be shortened to seven days if a negative PCR or certified rapid antigen test result is then available.

Employees in hospitals, nursing homes, etc. May be released from isolation after seven days if there is a negative PCR test result as well as no symptoms for at least 48 hours.

Contacts who are already boostered or have been fully vaccinated or recovered within the past three months are no longer required to be quarantined under the amendments to the Protective Measures Exemption Ordinance. However, if those who have been fully vaccinated (second vaccination less than three months ago), boostered or newly recovered develop symptoms suggestive of Covid 19 disease, they must be quarantined and test.

Contact persons without sufficient vaccination protection or who have not survived a Corona infection must be quarantined for ten days. They can be released from quarantine after seven days with a negative PCR or certified rapid antigen test result. For children and adolescents as contact persons, the quarantine can be shortened to five days with a certified test.

Johnson& Johnson (vaccination)

The federal government has changed the definition for full vaccination of individuals who received their initial vaccination with Johnson& Johnson have received. For persons infected with Johnson& Johnson vaccine, a second vaccination is now also required for “fully vaccinated” status and thus a third vaccination for the booster.

Kitas

All persons in the day-care centers (i.e. also the pedagogical staff) must wear an OP mask or a mask according to the standards FFP2, FFP3, N95, KN95, P2, DS2 or KF94, wherever this is possible. Depending on the situation (for example, for targeted language support or when settling disputes and comforting children), the wearing of a mask can be temporarily dispensed with. Children in care before school enrollment are exempt from the masking requirement.

Staff must be tested in accordance with the 3G regulation at the workplace. This also applies to day care for children. Vaccinated and recovering employees must test three times a week (mandatory testing). Boosted employees are excluded from this, here an occasion and symptom-related testing is sufficient.

All children are permanently cared for in the daycare center. Parents of daycare children receive self-tests suitable for young children from the state free of charge. This is to allow parents to test their children twice a week.

For outside individuals (z. B. caterers or beverage suppliers), the 3G rule applies in daycare centers. Parents are exempt from the rule for bringing and picking up the children.

Contact restrictions

For private indoor meetings – and since the 4. January 2022 outside as well – applies: they are limited to a maximum of ten persons, regardless of vaccination status. If an unvaccinated person participates, a household is limited to no more than two persons from another household. Children up to the age of 14. Age of birth are not counted in each case. Couples with separate residences are considered as one household.

It is recommended to keep a minimum distance of 1.50 meters to other persons. This also applies to the wearing of a mouth-nose covering if the distance cannot be maintained, as well as indoors in general, if people from several households come together. People with a severely disabled ID card may be assisted by accompanying persons.

Contact data collection

There is no longer an obligation to record contact data, except for visitors to care facilities. It is prohibited to misrepresent contact information. Those who do this anyway face a fine of 1.000 euros. Contact information is kept for a period of four weeks in compliance with data protection laws and then destroyed. Facilities open to the public must provide a QR code as an offer for guests to register with the Robert Koch Institute’s Corona warning app. However, registration is voluntary.

Hospital

The care of patients in hospitals is ensured. In addition to the hygiene rules for facilities with public traffic and a testing concept, hospitals are individually responsible for what other measures are required. Visitors must be vaccinated, recovered or tested. There are exceptions, for example, in the case of terminal care.

Culture: theater, concerts, cinema, museum

Events where guests have fixed seating may have a maximum of 500 attendees. A mask obligation always applies. The state ordinance mentions concerts, lectures, readings, theater and cinema performances as examples. For all other events, no more than 50 people may be present indoors and 100 outdoors. In cultural institutions (except libraries and archives), 2G applies. A mask must be worn when singing inside enclosed spaces. Children up to school age are exempt, as are underage students who are regularly tested at school. People who are unvaccinated for medical reasons are allowed in on presentation of a medical certificate and a negative test.

Facilities must provide a QR code as an offer to guests to register with the Robert Koch Institute’s Corona warning app. However, registration is voluntary. When singing inside enclosed spaces, mouth-to-nose covering is

Airing

The state government is following a recommendation by the federal government to place great importance on ventilation, as aerosols are a major factor in the spread of viruses. Aerosols are small droplets that people exhale or cough up. Scientific findings suggest that regular ventilation reduces the risk of infection in rooms.

It is considered proven that .

  • . Consistent, intensive and regular ventilation is effective in inhibiting the spread of the virus.
  • . Ventilation only helps in combination with the AHA rule (distance, hygiene, everyday masks).
  • . the fewer people in a room together, the lower the risk of infection. Here, the Federal Environment Agency recommends that rooms be occupied by only so many people that all can keep the distance requirement of 1.5 meters at all times.

Mandatory wearing of masks

Masks are again mandatory for all indoor events – wearing FFP2 masks is recommended. Employees in retail and service establishments with storefronts must also wear a mask permanently, regardless of physical barriers such as acrylic windows. For choirs, the following applies indoors: Mouth-nose coverings must also be worn when singing.

Masks are also compulsory in retail outlets, passenger transport, indoor areas of restaurants, nursing homes, clinics and, in certain cases, at meetings. Even in stores where there is public traffic, masks are now compulsory again. Those visiting people in care or inclusion facilities must wear an FFP2 mask (FFP3, N95, KN95, P2, DS2 or KF94 are also permitted), a surgical mask is not sufficient.

Authorities can also mandate masks for pedestrian areas and main shopping areas. Mouth and nose coverings include surgical masks and masks of the FFP2, FFP3, N95, KN95, P2, DS2 or KF94 standards. Everyday masks, for example made of fabric, and masks with an outlet valve are generally not permitted.

The rules in detail:
The mask must cover both mouth and nose.
Children under the age of six are exempt from the mask requirement. For older children, the same rules apply as for adults. However, the Department of Health recommends that children wear surgical masks rather than FFP2 masks because they are more fitted.
People with physical, mental or psychological impairments who are unable to wear a mask because of this are exempt from the mask requirement.
People with hearing disabilities and people with speech disabilities are allowed to remove a face shield as far as it is necessary for the purpose of communication with others.
So-called face shields may be worn by people who work in the field of communication for people with hearing disabilities.

In addition, the state ordinance recommends “if possible” to use Always wear mouth-to-nose coverings indoors when people from more than one household are together.

Museum

In museums 2G applies. Children up to school enrollment and underage students who are regularly tested at school are exempt from this requirement. Persons who are unvaccinated for medical reasons may enter upon presentation of a medical certificate and a negative test. Museums must provide a QR code as an offer to guests, which is used for registration with the Corona warning app of the Robert Koch Institute. However, registration is voluntary.

Music / choirs / playing instruments

  • For choirs, the following applies indoors: Mouth-to-nose coverings must also be worn when singing
  • Playing wind instruments is not permitted in view of the increased risk of infection
  • Professionals or examinees are exempt from the mouth-nose covering obligation and the ban on playing wind instruments when singing

Public transport (oPNV)

In buses, trains, cabs and school buses, as well as at stations and stops, customers are required to wear masks, as are employees of the transport companies, insofar as physical contact with other persons exists due to the nature of their work. An OP mask or a mask complying with the FFP2, FFP3, N95, KN95, P2, DS2 or KF94 standards is required. The listed rules do not apply to passengers on long-distance trains, long-distance buses, ferries or airplanes who are only passing through Schleswig-Holstein and do not leave the means of transport. Masks are not compulsory in enclosed compartments used alone or with persons of one’s own household.

In addition, there are nationwide rules: 3G applies in buses and trains. Passengers must therefore present a negative test if they are not vaccinated or recovered. So it is with domestic flights. On the other hand, cabs and school transportation are exempt. The controls are left to the transport companies. As with fare evasion, there is a threat of fines. An overview of the federal decisions (z.B. 3G in the workplace and on public transport) and the new Infection Protection Act can be found here.

Nursing homes

From 17. On January 1, vaccinated and recovering employees in nursing and integration care facilities as well as outpatient care services must be tested three times a week. Employees who have not been vaccinated or recovered will still be required to test daily.

Admission to a home is possible. In case of symptoms that could indicate an infection with the coronavirus, the admission must be clarified by a doctor. Residents of retirement and nursing homes and institutions for integration assistance may receive visitors. FFP2 masks are mandatory (masks of standards FFP3, N95, KN95, P2, DS2 or KF94 are also permitted).

All visitors must be tested before entering a home, including vaccinated and recovering visitors. This also applies in institutions for the care of the vulnerable and in early intervention centers. Persons cared for and accommodated there, as well as their accompanying persons, who enter the facility only for an insignificant period of time, are not considered visitors and are exempt from the testing obligation.

There must be on-site testing facilities for visitors and employees. Outside testing must be offered at least three days per week for at least three hours each time. A self-test may also be administered on-site if done in the presence of facility personnel. Nursing home operators who do not offer testing or do not monitor visitor testing face a fine of up to 25.000 euros.

Basically, the hygiene rules for facilities with public traffic and individual concepts of the respective facility apply.

  • The home must have a hygiene concept that also regulates the safe arrangement of visits.
  • Indoor visits to the facility are documented. Contact information is collected.

Prostitution

Prostitution business is allowed. Operation is only permitted with an appropriate hygiene concept. The rules for services with physical contact apply – i.e. 2G.

Travel

2G-Plus applies in hotels, boarding houses, vacation homes and other lodging establishments (including cruise ships), as well as for organized vacation trips with travel companies (indoors) for tourist purposes. This means a rapid antigen test (no more than 24 hours old) or a PCR test (no more than 48 hours old) must be provided. This excludes people with booster vaccinations, children up to school age, and underage students who are regularly tested at school. Persons who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons may be guests upon presentation of a medical certificate and a negative test.

3G applies to guests who confirm in writing that their accommodation is required exclusively for business, professional or official reasons, for medical reasons or for compelling socio-ethical reasons.

Schools

Students and teachers must continue to wear a mask even when in class. The rule applies to all school types and all grades. Exceptions are the schoolyard or school sports. Sports and music lessons are to continue – but in such a way that the risk of infection is minimized. Competitions, singing and making music with wind instruments are not possible for the time being. In the refectory, the mask may be removed if a minimum distance of 1.5 meters can be maintained. There is also no mask requirement for final examinations, for written performance certificates lasting more than two hours, and for oral presentations if a minimum distance of 1.5 meters from other persons is maintained.

A mask must be worn at school-sponsored events outside of school grounds. Exception: All participants are in the fresh air and a minimum distance of 1.5 meters is maintained from bystanders.

According to the Ministry of Education, everyone who enters the school for classes or other school-related face-to-face events must present a negative Corona test. This test can also be taken immediately after entering the building. The test is valid for a maximum of two days, i.e. must usually be carried out three times a week.

Cohorts will again be formed at elementary schools and support centers, although they may include multiple learning groups. There should only be a change to distance teaching if more than half of the pupils in a group or one third of the teaching staff are affected by a quarantine order.

The following quarantine rules apply according to the current Segregation decree For school-aged children and adolescents:

Students who test positive for Corona must immediately go into domestic isolation for 10 days. However, they may return to school after only seven days if a negative test result is available (rapid antigen test with certification or PCR test at a testing center).

  • If the person sitting next to you at school has tested positive for Corona, your classmates – including the person sitting next to you – generally do not have to be quarantined. The prerequisite for this is that the protection concept has been correctly implemented within the school. Segregation may be considered under current school policy if protective measures have not been followed.
  • If school-age children and adolescents have had close contact with a person infected with Corona outside of school, the same requirements apply as for other close contacts: If they are not vaccinated or recovered, they must be quarantined for ten days. In the case of schoolchildren, however, the special rule applies that they may return to school after only five days if a negative certified rapid antigen test or PCR test is available. Fully vaccinated or recently recovered school-age children and adolescents do not need to be quarantined at all. (For convalescents, the positive test may not be longer than 90 days ago).)

Swimming pool / fun pool

In swimming and fun pools applies 2G-Plus. Children up to school age and underage pupils who are regularly tested at school are exempt from this rule. Individuals who are unvaccinated for medical reasons will be admitted upon presentation of a doctor’s certificate and a negative test. Boosters are also not required to take a test. s are tested for professional, business or official purposes, or if it is essential for animal welfare, and if they wear mouth-to-nose covering in areas frequented by the public, in accordance with § 2a, provided that this is compatible with these purposes.

If people confirm in writing that they need to enter the hall for business, professional or official reasons, proof of testing is also sufficient. In areas with public traffic they must then wear a mask.

Guests in saunas, steam baths and whirlpools must also present a negative test result in addition to proof of vaccination or recovery, unless they have already received their booster vaccination (“booster”).

Baths must provide a QR code as an offer for guests to register with the Robert Koch Institute’s Corona warning app. However, registration is voluntary.

Playground

playgrounds may be used.

Sports

For indoor sports, 2G-Plus applies. Children up to school enrollment and underage students who are regularly tested at school are exempt from this rule. Persons who are unvaccinated for medical reasons can participate by presenting a medical certificate and a negative test.

For professional athletes and people who have to enter sports facilities for professional reasons, 3G applies. For unvaccinated and non-recovered professional athletes, however, masks are then mandatory in all areas with public traffic. Exemptions also include when the sport is required for animal welfare (e.g.B. movement of horses) – also here the 3G-rule is applied.

For spectators of indoor sports, the rules for events apply, i.e. 2G.

Competitions with more than 50 athletes inside enclosed spaces and more than 100 outside enclosed spaces are not permitted. This also includes sports festivals and friendly games. The upper limit for sportsmen does not apply to training however.

An overview of the 2G-Plus rule for sports clubs in Schleswig-Holstein can be found in this PDF document from the State Sports Association (LSV).

Therapy facilities

Therapy facilities such as physiotherapy practices are allowed to receive patients and work in compliance with a hygiene concept. Patients who are neither vaccinated nor recovered are required to wear a mask. For the service providers themselves, 3G and masks are mandatory. In addition, the rules for establishments open to the public apply.

Animal parks, wildlife parks, aquariums, zoos

Animal parks, wildlife parks, aquariums, fishing ponds, zoos and botanical gardens can open with hygiene concepts. Within enclosed spaces, 2G-Plus applies – excludes children up to enrollment and underage students who are regularly tested at school. People who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons will be allowed in with presentation of a doctor’s certificate and a negative test. Operators must provide a QR code as an offer for guests to register with the Robert Koch Institute’s Corona warning app. However, registration is voluntary for guests.

Accommodation: Hotels and hostels

2G-Plus applies in hotels, guesthouses, vacation apartments and other accommodation establishments (including cruise ships). That is, guests must present a rapid antigen test (no more than 24 hours old) or a PCR test (no more than 48 hours old). People with a complete basic immunization who can prove a booster vaccination at least 14 days ago are exempt from the 2G-Plus test obligation.

This also applies to children up to school enrollment and underage students who are regularly tested at school. Individuals who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons may be guests with presentation of a medical certificate and a negative test. 3G applies to those guests who confirm in writing that the accommodation is required solely for business, professional or official reasons, medical or compelling social ethical reasons.

Events

Corona ordinance prohibits events with more than 50 people inside and 100 people outside. Exceptions are events where guests have fixed seats and are “predominantly passive”. Then, up to 500 people are allowed to gather at one time. Concerts, lectures, readings, theater and cinema performances, for example, are listed in the ordinance. Here a mask obligation always applies.

A hygiene concept must still be drawn up for all events. In closed rooms 2G applies. Children up to school enrollment and underage students who are regularly tested at school are exempt from 2G. Persons who are unvaccinated for medical reasons may attend on presentation of a medical certificate and a negative test. If other tested persons are present for purely professional purposes, all participants must wear a mask.

Authorities can order 2G regulation for other events with market character or more than 100 people present at the same time outside closed rooms. However, there must be an increased risk of infection for this due to local conditions and the expected volume of visitors.

For participation in (closed) professional events such as meetings and seminars, 3G applies in principle.

Event organizers must provide a QR code as an offer to register with the RKI’s Corona warning app. However, registration is voluntary.

Dancing events inside closed rooms are not permitted.

Gatherings

Anyone planning an assembly must prepare a hygiene concept (does not apply to spontaneous assemblies). There is no limit on the number of people.

Indoors: No more than half of the available seats may be occupied inside closed rooms. Within closed rooms, seats in the immediate vicinity of the participant may not be occupied or may only be occupied by a close person. All participants except presenters must wear a mask.

The above restrictions do not apply if 2G is implemented and no more than 50 people attend. If more than 50 people are present indoors under 2G conditions, a mask obligation then also applies.

Outside: If more than 100 people are present at any one time at an assembly outside enclosed spaces, the mask requirement applies.

Exceptions: Assembly authorities, in consultation with health authorities, may authorize, restrict or prohibit assemblies in derogation of these rules if it is proportionate to do so.

According to the Schleswig-Holstein Assembly Law, an assembly is defined as follows: “An assembly in the sense of this law is a local gathering of at least three persons for the purpose of a joint discussion or demonstration predominantly aimed at participating in the formation of public opinion.”

Wellness: sauna, solarium, whirlpool, massage

Guests in saunas, steam rooms and hot tubs will also be required to provide a negative test result in addition to proof of vaccination or convalescence, unless they have already received their booster vaccination (“booster”). Children up to school age are also excluded, as well as underage students who are regularly tested at school. People who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons will be admitted upon presentation of a doctor’s certificate and a negative test. Operators must provide a QR code as an offer for guests to register with the Robert Koch Institute’s Corona Warning app. However, registration is voluntary.

Weekly market

There are no restrictions for weekly markets.

2G-Plus

If the 2G-plus rule applies, people with a booster vaccination were already exempt from testing in 2G-plus settings. This exemption is now being extended. So to be able to currently visit a gym or restaurant, for example (where the 2G plus rule applies), the following people do not need an additional test:

  • People who have already received a booster vaccination
  • Persons who have been freshly double vaccinated (i.e. whose second vaccination was less than three months ago)
  • Persons who have recently recovered (i.e. whose illness occurred less than three months ago)
  • People who are double vaccinated and recovered.
