Berlin allows outdoor events up to 250 people

Berlin has loosened some restrictions in a continued push to work a way out of lockdown.

As the UK roadmap out of restrictions suffered a major blow last week with an extension to the current limits, over in Germany, they continue with their dedication to relinquish their tightened social rules ahead of the loosening of clubbing restrictions. 

Friday (18th June) became the day Berlin eased lockdown rules and allowed for the planning and hosting of outdoor dance events up to a 250 person capacity. 

Some stipulations run alongside this allowance, however. For example, to attend, partygoers have to present a recent negative COVID-19 test and sport the FFP2- masks when not seated.

There will be no change to contact restrictions, though, which means that ten people from up to five different households can attend the event together. 

In neighbouring Brandenburg, just a stone’s throw away, outdoor dance events of up to 1000 attendees are allowed without restriction. The federal state’s prime minister, Dietmar Woidke, announced the decision at a cabinet meeting on June 15th. However, indoor events will require masks coupled with additional testing, and “no more than one guest per ten square meters” will be allowed. 

The Berlin high-guard has also decided to relax several other rules, including face coverings in busy outdoor areas and the lifting of the midnight to 5 AM alcohol ban in pubs and eateries. 

A little fact check. As of Wednesday, June 16th, Berlin had a rolling seven-day infection rate of 12.2 cases per 100,000, down over a per cent on the previous day. Almost 180,000 COVID infections have been recorded in the capital since the pandemic began.
