Because of the corona pandemic, berlin will soon have lower ceilings for private associations. Only 25 people are allowed to meet outside instead of 50, and only members of one household plus a maximum of five other people are allowed to meet inside instead of ten.
This was decided by the senate on tuesday, as announced by head of government michael muller (SPD). The senate had already decided to extend the mandatory wearing of masks. In the future, it will also apply to weekly markets, certain shopping streets and queues where the minimum distance of 1.5 meters does not have to be observed.
As muller announced, the lockdown imposed to contain the pandemic is also to be made court-proof. There are plans for an ordinance and a change in the law to "tighten up" the nighttime curfew and the ban on serving alcohol, both in the catering trade and in late-night outlets.
