Rheinland-Pfalz, home to US forces, exempts those with coronavirus boosters from testing to enter restaurants | Stars and Stripes

Earlier in the week, the state had proposed allowing unvaccinated people to be in contact with only one other person outside their household.

“Experience has shown that the virus always spreads where people come into contact with each other,” Rheinland-Pfalz Health Minister Clemens Hoch said in a statement earlier this week. “This is especially true for nonimmunized people. We have therefore decided to limit contacts in public spaces for nonvaccinated people.”

Rapid tests, supervised by the business or service provider, will be permissible in many cases, Hoch said. In areas where masks can be worn, such as retail shops and hair salons, proof of vaccination or recent recovery will remain sufficient.

The measures come as Germany continues to battle its highest load of new coronavirus cases since the pandemic began, and amid concerns that the new omicron variant could make COVID-19 tougher to fight.
