Your visit – 2G-Plus rule applies from January 10

Due to the current pandemic development, the 2G-Plus rule ('vaccinated - recovered + tested') will apply to Schwankhalle events from 10.1.2022. This means: for your visit to the Schwankhalle or one of our external venues, you will need proof of: A complete vaccination (to be proven by a digital vaccination certificate or a vaccination passport) OR a recovery from Covid-19 (to be proven by a positive PCR test at least 28 days and maximum 6 months old or a digital certificate of recovery) AND proof of a certified negative rapid antigen test or PCR test (not older than 24 hours).

Please plan some extra time for the check-in process and be there at least 15 minutes before the event starts.

Individuals who have already received a booster vaccination or whose second vaccination was received no more than three months ago are exempt from the testing requirement. Please also bring an official identification document so that we can clearly assign your proof.

Children and adolescents up to 17 years of age and persons who cannot be vaccinated for health reasons (medical certificate required) are excluded from the 2G-Plus regulation. For these groups of people, the 3G rule continues to apply at 2G-Plus events.
