Bavarian State Chancellery Press Release


MUNICH — On Jan. 11, the Bavarian State Government announced several changes to the current Corona rules and regulations that will be put in the 15th BAV Infection Ordinance. These changes will be effective on Jan. 13, and the ordinance will extended up to and include Feb. 9, 2022.


The following is a summary of the announced changes:

 1. Extension of the 15th BayIfSMV up to and including Feb. 9, 2022

The Bavarian Council of Ministers decided today that the 15th Bavarian Infection Protection Measures Ordinance will be extended up to and including Feb. 9, 2022.


2. No 2G+ rule in the gastronomy sector

The Bavarian Government will not implement the federal 2G+ rule in the gastronomy sector. That means that 2G remains the access rule for restaurants and other gastronomy facilities.

NOTE:  If necessary, measures will be changed when incidence values of 1,000 or above are reached.


3. Exceptions for boostered individuals 

  • All boostered individuals do not need a test to enter 2G+ facilities


4. The regulations on quarantine for contact persons and isolation will be adjusted, effective Jan. 11, 2022.

  • In general, the duration of quarantine and isolation is 10 days.
  • After seven days, free-testing is possible through presentation of a negative PCR or rapid antigen test. This only applies to persons in isolation, if they were symptom-free for 48 hours before the test.
  • For employees in vulnerable facilities, due to the special need for protection of the people housed there, free testing by means of a PCR test or negative rapid tests daily for five days is required for resuming work after quarantine or isolation.
  • In the event of quarantine as a contact person, free testing is possible for school children and children in childcare facilities after five days (PCR test or rapid antigen test).
  • Exclusion from quarantine: As soon as the federal government has made the necessary legal changes, close contact persons who have complete vaccination protection — including booster vaccination, as well as comparable groups such as those who have recently been vaccinated and those who have recovered — will be excluded from the quarantine.
