We are happy to welcome you to Lübeck. Even if some minor restrictions are in place: we are simply happy that, your holiday in Schleswig-Holstein is possible in accommodation and gastronomy facilities under the keywords vaccinated or recovered and tested– the so-called 2G-plus status. At present, there are some rules in place which we would like to inform you about. See you soon in Lübeck!
The current contact rules for Schleswig-Holstein: Private indoor encounters or encounters in private gardens are only allowed with a maximum of 10 persons, unless all participants belong to the same household. The contact rule of a maximum number of 10 also applies to outdoor areas. Children aged under 14 years are not included. If not all participants (14 years and older) of the encounters qualify as either fully vaccinated, recovered or excluded from vaccinations for medical reasons, only persons from one household are allowed to meet with two more persons from another household.
A tightened 2G rule, the so-called 2G-plus status, applies to overnight guests of accommodation establishments. In addition to your proof of vaccination or recovery, you must also present a negative test result upon arrival. The negative result of a rapid antigen test must not be older than 24 hours and the result of a PCR test must not be older than 48 hours. Exempt from an additional test are persons who > have received a booster dose (from the date of booster vaccination), > qualify as full vaccinated > who have recovered from Covid19 after the first, between the first and the second or after the second vaccination, > have had a complete course of an approved vaccine with the final dose administered not longer than 3 months ago and > qualify as recovered from their Covid19 infection not longer than 3 months ago. The gastronomy also requires the 2G-plus rule. The so-called 2G status still applies to retail stores. Stores that sell convenience goods such as supermarkets, drug stores and pharmacies are excluded, but you are required to wear a mask. In public facilities of the Hanseatic City of Lübeck, such as theatres, museums and the library, the 2G status also applies. This means that only fully vaccinated and recovered persons are granted access.
Children aged under 7 and pupils, who are regularly tested at school, are exempt from the 2G status and the 2G-plus rule. Persons who for medical reasons are recommended to not be vaccinated need to provide a doctor’s certificate and a negative rapid antigen test result in order to be granted access where the 2G rule or the 2G-plus rule applies. The 3G status (fully vaccinated, recovered or negative test) applies to business related indoors such as conferences and seminars. Persons who qualify as fully vaccinated or recovered (16 years and older) are obliged to show proof of identity with a photo ID. You are recommended to wear a face covering in indoor areas.
