MAINZ (dpa-AFX) – After the decisions of the federal and state governments to contain the pandemic, a new corona regulation will come into force in Rhineland-Palatinate this Thursday. The exclusion of spectators at major events will then take effect immediately, said Health Minister Clemens Hoch (SPD) on Wednesday in Mainz. Clubs and discos will also be closed from Thursday. The contact restriction to a maximum of ten people, including those who have been vaccinated and recovered with the exception of children, should not apply until December 28th.

Especially in the time between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, it will not be possible to party, said Prime Minister Malu Dreyer (SPD). Germany is currently “in a kind of paradoxical situation”. The number of infections is currently falling slightly, which extends to the delta variant that has prevailed up to now. “But Omikron is a highly contagious variant of the virus.” Dreyer warned “that it can also undermine the vaccination protection”, that is, it could infect people who have been vaccinated. Two or better three vaccinations are the best protection against a severe course with hospitalization.

Parishes can organize their services under 3G regulations, said Hoch. However, they are free to choose 2G or 2G plus – i.e. only admit vaccinated and convalescent people with a test./irs/pz/DP/jha
