Lower Saxony and Bremen
Court annuls mask requirement in clubs

Hannover/Lüneburg (dpa/lni) – The Higher Administrative Court (OVG) temporarily suspended the obligation to wear masks in clubs, discos and shisha bars in Lower Saxony. This was announced by the Lüneburg court on Friday. The operator of a nightclub in Osnabrück opposed this regulation. The court decided that the regulations were not a necessary protective measure within the meaning of the Infection Protection Act and were also not appropriate. The decision is final.

Clubs and discos in the state can reopen from last Friday. Until now, the mask could only be removed when sitting, it had to be worn when dancing. The access rule is not analyzed in the resolution, so the 2G plus rule continues to be applied inside and outside these companies. Those who have not been vaccinated against the corona virus or have recovered from an infection will not have access. Anyone who has not yet received a third vaccination also needs a negative test. According to the state government, young people under the age of 18 are not exempt from these requirements, unlike other areas of clubs and discos.

The Ministry of Health announced that the state government of Lower Saxony took note of this decision and that the result was that the corresponding regulation in the Corona Ordinance would no longer apply with immediate effect. The OVG annulled various corona rules of the state government, such as the 2G rule in retail in Lower Saxony shortly before Christmas or the upper limit for outdoor events in February.
