Relaxation of quarantine rules planned

( – The current wave of the Coronavirus usually results in milder infections, which is why the quarantine rules are to be reduced to five days. This is the proposal from the Federal Ministry of Health and the Robert Koch Institute. The isolation should only last five days instead of the previous ten days, and seven days when a negative test result is presented. President of Medics Reinhardt welcomed the announced easing as a pragmatic step. Federal Minister of Health Lauterbach’s plans are suitable for slightly easing the personnel situation in health and care.

The Federal States have yet to comment on the easing. Free rapid tests for everyone are to be provided through the early summer months. The test regulation, which was initially valid until 30 March, will now remain valid until 29 June. Even citizens without symptoms are entitled to have at least one rapid test per week carried out free of charge.
