Today, Tuesday, the first restrictions related to coronavirus are lifted in Hesse. According to a decree adopted by the Hessian coronavirus cabinet on Monday, a rule limiting contact during private meetings in public places for vaccinated and cured persons comes into force today. The previous regulation, under which a maximum of ten people from two households could meet, now applies only to unvaccinated and untreated people.
In addition, in the first phase of the adopted three-phase plan, the school testing regulations are relaxed. After a student tests positive for coronavirus in a particular classroom, students will be tested daily for one week, rather than the previous two weeks. After that, there will remain three mandatory tests per week for unvaccinated students. On a voluntary basis, these tests will continue to be offered to fully vaccinated students or those who have recovered.
Further relaxations will be introduced on March 4.
