Bavaria is reacting to the rapidly increasing number of corona infections. Contact restrictions for unvaccinated people are to be introduced. Prime Minister Markus Söder announced this on Friday.

Because of the out of control corona pandemic, Bavaria is drastically tightening its measures. All clubs, discos and bars should close for the next three weeks, there should be no Christmas markets this year, as Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) announced on Friday after his coalition consulted in Munich. There is a curfew at 10 p.m. for restaurants. Cultural and sporting events are only allowed with a maximum occupancy of 25 percent of spectators and the 2G-plus rule. The head of government said the justification was to proceed where there was the most contagion.

In addition, contact restrictions for unvaccinated people will be introduced. “A de facto lockdown for unvaccinated people,” said Söder. Only five people and two households are allowed to meet for unvaccinated people.

Bavaria is also imposing a lockdown on districts with a corona incidence of over 1,000. “Everything has to be closed here,” said Söder. There will be exceptions for daycare centers, schools and retailers. One customer per 20 square meters is admitted to retail in these districts.

The lockdown measures should apply until mid-December. Eight Bavarian districts currently have an incidence of over 1,000. Söder said he expected an increase here. The resolutions of the cabinet are to be introduced to the state parliament on Tuesday and adopted there.

Health Minister Klaus Holetschek (CSU) once again appealed to people in the Free State to get vaccinated and voluntarily reduce their contacts. The health system is threatened with collapse.
