Bavaria relaxes the corona quarantine rules. Health Minister Klaus Holetschek (CSU) made it clear again at the weekend.
Munich – Bavaria has relaxed the quarantine rules for certain contact persons of Corona * infected people. “Even as a contact person for omicron cases, newly vaccinated (three months), newly recovered (three months) and boosted (unlimited) no longer have to be in quarantine,” as Klaus Holetschek (CSU *) said on Saturday in Munich. “This means that there are no longer any different regulations for the different virus variants,” said the Minister of Health.*
Bavaria relaxes quarantine rules for certain contact persons of corona infected people
Previously, contact persons of a person infected with the omicron variant were quarantined for 14 days without the chance to test free. On Friday, the Federal Council cleared the way for an ordinance that regulates fundamental exceptions to quarantine.
Otherwise, the following has applied since last Tuesday: The duration of the isolation for infected people and the duration of the quarantine for close contacts is usually ten days. However, a free test with a negative PCR or rapid antigen test is possible after just seven days – although you must also be symptom-free for at least 48 hours after an infection.*
