At the invitation of the Senate Chancellery, representatives of the Senate Departments of Economics, Health and Culture met yesterday to discuss the further course of action regarding the Corona Regulation with the associations/representatives of the hotel and restaurant industry (DEHOGA Berlin), Intoura, Conventionpartner, Berlin Music Commission and Handel Berlin Brandenburg (HBB). In summary, it can be said on the part of the associations that the conversation was open and constructive but also sobering. In short: there will be no relief for the industries!
It was promised that the value of incidences will no longer be the sole decisive argument for decisions (as it already is not), but that this value will continue to play a serious role. Tomorrow, the Berlin Senate will discuss a future Corona traffic light and the new regulation that will come into force on August 21. It is already becoming apparent that the 3G rule (vaccinated, recovered or tested) will continue to apply. For the hotel industry, this would even mean a tightening of the current rules, as hotel guests arriving on Saturday would then also have to comply with this regulation. However, the final decision of the Berlin Senate regarding the new regulation remains to be seen.
However, it has already been promised that there will be no further restrictions, taking into account the current situation.
It was also agreed that the circle participating today will continue to actively exchange information – especially the Conventionpartner e.V. as well as the Berlin Music Commission will provide the Senate with further recommendations for action regarding major events.
