Bavaria's Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) wants to relax the quarantine rules for people infected with corona and also allow people without symptoms to work. "We are firmly convinced that the quarantine must be adjusted," said the CSU chairman of the "Augsburger Allgemeine" on Thursday.
"I believe that we are now in an endemic phase due to the high level of vaccinations." The pandemic phase has been overcome. "That's why we will now rewrite the quarantine rules in Bavaria - possibly together with other countries," said Söder.
The Bavarian head of government is aiming for a joint approach with Baden-Württemberg. "We always remain cautious, we appeal for vaccination, but we will adapt the quarantine rules together with our colleagues from Baden-Württemberg."
