Due to the extremely high corona numbers, Baden-Württemberg is issuing nightly curfews for unvaccinated people in several hotspot regions.
Stuttgart – From Monday, night curfews for unvaccinated people will apply in three hotspot regions in Baden-Württemberg. The background is the extremely high corona numbers in the districts.
According to a report by SWR the following circles:
- Schwarzwald-Baar-Kreis: incidence of 659.6 (as of November 18, 2021)
- Ostalbkreis: incidence of 700.9 (as of November 19, 2021)
- Biberach: Incidence of 677.9 (as of November 19, 2021)
In the districts, unvaccinated people are only allowed to leave their apartments from Monday between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. for valid reasons. The head of the Ministry of Social Affairs, Uwe Lahl, gave the example of this SWR medical emergencies and reasons for work. The new regulation was instructed in a letter to the health authorities.
Baden-Württemberg tightens corona rules in hotspots
In addition, from Monday on, access to restaurants, hotels (with the exception of business travelers) and retail outlets will only be granted to immunized – i.e. vaccinated and recovered – visitors and customers. Excluded from this access restriction are shops and markets that provide basic services such as grocery stores, pharmacies, petrol and post offices, parcel services and banks, as well as companies that provide body-friendly services.
It is currently unclear whether the rule could apply to more circles. If the development continues, the answer will be yes, says Lahl. Because the goal is to break the fourth wave as quickly as possible.
“The cause of this fourth wave is the non-vaccinated,” Lahl explains the new regulation.
Corona alarm in Baden-Württemberg: Significant tightening of rules for younger people
In the southwest, significantly stricter corona restrictions are to apply from next Wednesday, especially for younger unvaccinated people. The green-black government is now planning to introduce the 2G rule (recovered or vaccinated) for 12 to 17-year-olds, which should also have far-reaching consequences for many families. In addition, exit restrictions for unvaccinated people in corona hotspots are planned. The new Corona regulation is currently being drawn up.
The corona alert level has been in effect in the southwest since Wednesday, at which unvaccinated people are largely excluded from participating in public life. Only vaccinated and convalescent people now have access to cinemas, museums, swimming pools and most other public events. Even those who can only show one negative test in restaurants or cafes have to stay outside. Schoolchildren have had to wear masks again since Wednesday. In addition, contact restrictions apply to unvaccinated people. You may only meet with one other person, alone or as a household.
Across Germany, the RKI incidence rose to a new record high on Sunday. (rjs / dpa)
