1) People with symptoms such as coughing or fever (higher than 37.5°C) may not participate in the event or enter the venue. This will be ensured by requiring people to fill out a questionnaire on site. People who have had contact with COVID-19 cases during the last 14 days as well as people with non-specific general symptoms and respiratory symptoms of any severity may not participate in the event.
2) It will be ensured that the maximum number of participants (50), will not be exceeded at any time. Everyone’s contact information will be collected, in order to track the chain of infection, if necessary.
3) Wherever possible, a minimum distance of 1.5 m between two people needs to be observed. Floor markings and/or partition walls representing the signposting system will help participants comply with the 1.5 m distancing rule in the critical event areas.
4) All participants and staff members must wear FFP2 masks once they enter interior spaces. The masks can only be taken off while eating and after being seated in one’s designated seat. Distancing rules are to be followed at any time.
5) As a general rule, all persons involved and present must carry their FFP2 mask with them at all times. The event organizer will provide a sufficient number of FFP2 masks. Face masks must adequately cover the nose and mouth. “Adequately” is defined as when the mask is correctly positioned over the mouth, nose, cheeks and chin and the edges of the mask close tightly around the face, in order to minimize the amount of air entering and leaving around the sides of the mask.
6) The participants are regularly told to comply with the safety measures.
7) The event organizer is responsible for ensuring that the safety and hygiene guidelines are complied with. Participants who do not comply with the guidelines will be removed from the premises.
8) When employing staff members during an event, the following applies: In accordance with occupational health protection and precaution measures, risk groups are to be especially protected. Individual advice on work-related health risks can be obtained as part of preventive visits to the company doctor. This is also where you can discuss preexisting or underlying medical conditions as well as COVID-19 anxieties and fears. In addition, it is necessary to observe the measures mentioned in the relevant and current hygiene guidelines in the event and hospitality sectors.
9) The current Coronavirus Entry Regulations (CoronaEinreiseV) apply to participants traveling from abroad: Travelers who spent time in risk areas are obliged to proceed directly to their own home or other suitable accommodation (e.g. hotel) and remain exclusively at this location following arrival (quarantine). The basic quarantine period following a stay in a basic risk area or a high-incidence area is 10 days and, following a stay in an area of variants of concern, 14 days.
Travelers who spent time in a basic risk area may end home quarantine prematurely by submitting a negative PCR test, proof of recovery or a vaccination certificate via the Federal Republic’s travel portal. Travelers who spent time in a high-incidence area may end home quarantine prematurely by submitting proof of recovery or a vaccination certificate via the travel portal or, after five days, by opting to “test themselves free” and presenting a negative test result. Quarantine can be ended in each case from the time the negative PCR test result has been submitted. Following a stay in an area of variants of concern, even people with a negative test result or proof of vaccination or recovery are obligated to quarantine for fourteen days. Moreover, this quarantine cannot be ended prematurely.
Participants who violate these rules are not allowed to take part in the event or enter the site.
