In accordance with the resolutions of the federal and state governments, the tightened contact restrictions also come into force in the last federal states. In Saxony there is also an FFP2 mask requirement in closed public facilities.
In the fight against the further spread of the corona virus, tougher measures are taking place in other federal states. Stricter contact restrictions now also apply in Bavaria, Berlin, Hesse, North Rhine-Westphalia, Saarland, Saxony, Schleswig-Holstein and Thuringia. Other countries had already implemented similar measures to protect themselves against the very contagious Omicron variant.
Before Christmas, the federal and state governments had agreed to further restrict private and public life by December 28th at the latest. The implementation of the rules was the responsibility of the countries.
Private meetings with a maximum of ten people
The contact restrictions stipulate that private meetings for vaccinated and convalescent people are only allowed with a maximum of ten people. Children up to 14 years are not counted. If there are unvaccinated people, even stricter rules apply (one household plus a maximum of two people from another household).
In Saxony, an FFP2 mask is also mandatory in closed public facilities and for body-friendly services. A maximum of 20 people with 3G evidence are allowed to attend funerals. The nocturnal curfew, which has existed since November for particularly affected corona hotspots, will be continued.
