2G rule allowing only vaccinated or recovered COVID patients inside public places begins in Saxony

The so-called 2G rule, restricting access to non-vaccinated people, started on Monday in Saxony. Storefronts, restaurants and cinemas in Dresden were seen enforcing the new ruling in footage filmed on Monday.

Only fully vaccinated or those who have fully recovered from COVID-19 are allowed to dine, shop, and take part in other activities inside a business.

“I find it OK. I think people should get vaccinated and for those people who missed the chance, now they can get it done,” stated local resident Nicolas.

Some residents wish Germany would offer free tests again as COVID rates rise to an all time high in the country. “Free tests would make more sense for me to do them at least three times a week.

Because there are still some outbreaks or people who got infected and relatively quickly infect themselves again and therefore we need tests,” remarked a local resident during an interview.

Germany has still yet to reach the figure of 70 percent of its population receiving at least one shot of a COVID-19 vaccine.
