When shopping and on the bus & train, you must cover your mouth and nose with a face mask or scarf. You need to wear a mask in front of the shops and in parking spaces. If you do not wear a mask, you will have to pay a fine of at least 50 euros. Saxony-Anhalt is an exception: there is no fines apply there. Some cities also require you to wear a mask in certain public spaces and streets. At workplace, you either must have a distance of 1.5 meters between people or wear a mask.
Strict contact restrictions continue to apply. In private, you are only allowed to meet people from your household and one other person (from another household). There is no exception for children- this means, for instance, that your family can invite the neighbour's child (for a play date), but not the child’s mother as the child counts as “one person”.
In regions with an incidence rate of over 200 new infections per 100,000 population, there will be further restrictions, including restricting the range of motion to 15 km from your place of residence. In other words, you are only allowed to move within a radius of 15 km from your city or municipality if there are many new infections in your region. Visits to the doctor or commuting to work are still permitted as the regulation is primarily intended to prevent day trips.
In other regions, private travel and day trips are not prohibited. However, the government urges citizens to do without it. Overnight stays in hotels or holiday resorts are not allowed for tourists at least until January 31, 2021.
Drinking alcohol in public places (streets, squares, parks, etc.) is also forbidden at least until January 31, 2021.
You must keep a distance of at least 1.50 meters from people who do not live in the same household as you.
Church services are allowed- however, the participants must wear a mask and keep a minimum distance of 1.50 meters. Singing together is not allowed.
There may be some additional stricter rules in your federal state or region- for instance, there may be a movement restriction. Then, everyone should stay at home. And you are only allowed to leave your apartment for urgent reasons, such as grocery shopping, work, doctor visits, etc. To learn more about the current corona rules in your state /your city, check corona-was-darf-ich.de- the information is available in many languages.
