Germany: 2G-Plus and mandatory third vaccination

The first crown summit 2022 of the German government, held this Friday in the format of a video conference, lasted a little less than two hours.

The prime ministers of the federal states and Chancellor Olaf Scholz discussed the issue of mandatory revaccination and the re-imposition of a state of emergency in connection with the pandemic. The parties also agreed to introduce new measures.

In the future, those contact persons who received the third dose of the vaccine will be exempted from quarantine, according to the website This also applies to comparable groups (recently vaccinated and recovered). All other contact persons will be forced to go into isolation or quarantine for 10 days or 7 days with a PCR test or a rapid antigen test. For employees of hospitals and nursing homes who have been in contact with infected persons, isolation is completed after 7 days if a PCR test is performed, and if there have been no symptoms within the last 48 hours.

Vaccinated citizens are required to do the test every time in order to go to a restaurant or cafe. Only revaccinated people can freely visit restaurants without a mandatory negative coronavirus test.

The head of the state of Saxony-Anhalt Rainer Haselhoff announced that the current measures to combat the coronavirus in the federal state will not change. In the catering industry, an additional test for the recovered and vaccinated (2G-Plus) is not required. Haselhoff believes that in Saxony-Anhalt, unlike other federal states, only the Delta strain is widespread, so new measures and restrictions are not needed yet.

The government of Bavaria has officially stated that “further tightening of restrictive measures, usually 2G-Plus, regardless of the level of incidence, in the entire catering sector should first be carefully studied on the basis of reliable scientific expertise.”

The federal and state governments will meet again on 24 January to once again discuss measures to combat the coronavirus.
