Organizers promoted mass parties with the unvaccinated and untested
Hanover. Partying in a club without any vaccinations, tests or masks? What sounds impossible in view of the rapidly increasing number of corona infections should happen in the same way in Hanover next week – for young people between 16 and 18 years of age. In the city, a party organizer specifically promoted that young people without a vaccination or test certificate can come to “Hanover’s largest house party” in a club, as the “Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung” (HAZ) reported on Friday. An exception rule in the corona regulations of the region should be possible. On Saturday, the operator of the club that the organizers had rented for the party withdrew However, you are given permission to use his premises. The party does not take place.
“2G applies to this event” can be read in small letters on the party flyer, underneath it reads: “Exception for under 18-year-olds.” For this group, “no vaccination or test certificate is required”. According to the general decree of the region, the 2G rule currently applies in restaurants, bars or clubs, but in return, distances and mask requirements can be waived, writes the “HAZ”. However, children and young people under the age of 18 are exempt from the 2G rule.
The health department will contact the organizer
Regarding the newspaper, region spokeswoman Sonja Wendt admitted that the announcement was within the framework of the current legal situation. “But of course, from the point of view of the health department, it would be advisable if the 16 to 18-year-old party guests were to test themselves voluntarily and as a precaution, provided they are not vaccinated,” says Wendt. The health department now wants to contact the organizer and discuss the possible safety precautions on site.
In the meantime, this is no longer necessary. According to the media report, the club operator withdrew the party organizers’ permission to use it: “What the three of them advertised is completely wrong. This does not correspond to our business policy and house rules ”, said the owner of the“ HAZ ”. “Something like that won’t happen with us. We have our own rules and have had 2G in our rooms for months. “
Meanwhile, the state of Lower Saxony is planning to close the gap according to “HAZ” information: The new Corona regulation should regulate that. The new Corona regulation should apply from November 23rd – three days before the planned party on next Friday.
