Shops with a sufficient hygiene concept are then to be allowed to reopen if the 7-day incidence is below 100 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in their district. If the value is between 100 and 200, the so-called Click & Meet will be possible.

In areas with a 7-day incidence of more than 100 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, the measures are to be further tightened. The exact measures will be determined by local authorities and may include, for example, exit or contact restrictions.
