Department store chain Woolworth is suing the 2G rule

The newly introduced 2G rule does not suit the retailer Woolworth. The chain complains against the new rule, according to which only vaccinated and convalescent can shop.

Münster – The department store chain Woolworth has filed a lawsuit against the 2G regulation in retail * with the Higher Administrative Court for the State of North Rhine-Westphalia. A court spokesman said on Wednesday (December 8th, 2021) in Münster that the company wanted to achieve the provisional suspension of the regulation in the most populous federal state in an urgent procedure. According to the 2G regulation, only vaccinated and convalescent people have access to many shops. Shops with daily needs, such as supermarkets, grocery stores and drug stores, are exempt from the tightening of the Corona rules.

The company sees the 2G rule as an inappropriate interference with the constitutionally guaranteed occupational freedom and the property guarantee, as well as a violation of the principle of equality, said the court spokesman. Woolworth argues that the introduction of the 2G rule is disproportionate and inappropriate. Because it is doubtful whether the retail trade in view of the existing protective measures such as the mask requirement at all emanate any significant risk of infection.

Woolworth lawsuit: the rules could change for the whole of North Rhine-Westphalia

A decision on the urgent application is no longer expected this week, the spokesman said. If the department store chain were successful with their norms control suit, not only the Woolworth branches would benefit, but also all other retailers in North Rhine-Westphalia. At first no comment was received from Woolworth. (dpa / red) * is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
