Situation and current measures in Mainz

Last update: 20 January, 2022, 10:40

*** Currently "2G-plus rule" supplemented by contact restrictions for private get-togethers ***

Current case numbers

Currently, only the state-wide "7-day hospitalisation incidence" (= number of newly admitted hospitalisation cases with COVID-19 diseases per 100,000 inhabitants) is used as a benchmark for the respective protective measures.

The daily updated 7-day hospitalisation incidence for Rhineland-Palatinate and further case figures for Rhineland-Palatinate can be found on the website of the State Investigation Office RLP:

Current rules in Mainz: Corona Control Ordinance of the State of Rhineland-Palatinate (Rechtsverordnung)

  • Currently, the "2G-plus rule" applies in RLP supplemented by contact restriction at private gatherings

    In Rhineland-Palatinate, the "2G-plus rule" applies indoors wherever a mask cannot be worn. There, even vaccinated persons must present a valid negative test. Persons who have already received booster vaccination are exempt from this testing requirement. Beginning January 14, 2022, individuals who are freshly - meaning less than three months ago - dually vaccinated or recovered, or who have recovered following a dual vaccination, will also be exempt from mandatory testing under the 2G Plus Rule.

    In areas where the mask can be worn (hairdressing or chiropody), the "2G" rule will continue to apply. This will henceforth also apply to outdoor events.
    Furthermore, 2G applies in retail, regardless of incidence. Daily supply stores are exempt.

    Private gatherings of vaccinated and recovered persons are now only permitted with a maximum of ten persons. Children up to the age of 14 are exempt. Once an unvaccinated person attends a gathering, the contact restrictions for unvaccinated persons apply: The gathering is limited to the individual\'s own household and no more than two people from another household.

    Supra-regional sports, cultural and comparable major events will take place without spectators from now on.
The currently applicable corona protection measures in detail can be found on the website of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate:

General notes

Employees of the Mainz city administration may also be affected by the effects of the current situation. Therefore longer processing times are possible. We kindly ask for your understanding.

The city administration asks to limit visits to the administrative buildings to what is absolutely necessary and to follow hygiene requirements during the visits. Meetings are only possible by prior arrangement. The colleagues in the individual offices can still be reached by telephone.
