North Saxony tightened corona rules from Wednesday
Northern Saxony is on the fifth day as a result of a weekly incidence of 35. Therefore, stricter corona restrictions will come into force in the district from Wednesday. Here, too, there is again the obligation to record contacts for indoor catering, for indoor events and for example in fitness studios, saunas and indoor swimming pools. In addition, 3G rules come into force. Employees and self-employed people with direct customer contact must be tested for a corona infection twice a week.
Northern Saxony was the only remaining district that had incidences below 35 in the past few weeks. In all other Saxon regions, the 3G rule – vaccinated, tested or recovered – had to be introduced for indoor offers.
