New regulations for fully vaccinated and recovered
Since 6 May 2021, Bavaria has placed fully vaccinated and recovered persons on an equal footing with persons who have tested negative. These are exempt from the general contact restriction, the curfew and the quarantine obligation. However, this does not apply to the special visiting and protection regulations in hospitals, care facilities, old people’s homes, etc.
Who is considered fully vaccinated?
- have been vaccinated with a vaccine licensed in the European Union,
- have a vaccination certificate in German, English, French, Italian or Spanish or in an electronic document, and
- who have been vaccinated for at least 14 days since the final vaccination.
Who is considered to be recovered?
- who has evidence of previous SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus infection in English, French, German, Italian or Spanish, or in an electronic document,
- where the underlying test has been performed by PCR, and
- the test was carried out at least 28 days, but not more than six months, ago.
