According to the paper (as of Sunday evening, 11:30 p.m., available), a triad is planned. The most important sentence: “By the beginning of spring on March 20, 2022, the far-reaching restrictions on social, cultural and economic life should be steadily withdrawn.”
That means: Germany celebrates Freedom Day at the beginning of spring!
︎ First, the rules for private celebrations should be relaxed. The paper says: “So far, there was an upper limit of 10 people. Now private meetings of vaccinated and recovered with up to  People possible.” The square brackets mean: the number of guests, 20, will still be discussed on Wednesday.
In addition, access controls in retail are to be abolished nationwide.
▶︎ From March 4th, the restrictions in restaurants and hotels should be lifted, clubs should be able to open again! 3G should then apply in restaurants and hotels (access for vaccinated people, those who have recovered and people with a daily test). Discos and clubs (“dance fun”) are opened for those who have recovered and those who have been vaccinated with a daily test or with a third vaccination (2G-Plus).
▶︎ 2G or 2G-Plus should also apply to major events such as football games. The paper states: “At major national events (including sport), those who have recovered and vaccinated (2G regulation or those who have recovered and vaccinated with a daily test or third vaccination (2G-Plus regulation) can participate as spectators.”
︎ Then the important paragraph: “In a third and final step from March 20, 2022, all more far-reaching protective measures will be eliminated.”
The paper goes on to say: “The home office regulations associated with the Infection Protection Act also no longer apply. Employers can, however, continue to offer work from home in agreement with the employees if there are no operational reasons to the contrary and this is in the interest of operational protection against infection (e.g. when working in open-plan offices).”
After Freedom Day, people only wear masks, especially indoors.
