Stricter corona rules in the supermarket: calls for 2G at Aldi, Edeka and Lidl are getting loud
The corona rules in retail are tightened. However, supermarkets are exempt from the 2G rule. Will it stay that way? An expert calls for implementation.
Berlin – Nationwide, the corona infection numbers are at a high level. As a result, the corona rate in Germany will be tightened further. There are more restrictions on the German citizens, especially those who have not been vaccinated are left out in the truest sense of the word. The implementation of the 2G rule in the supermarket is even being considered. Would this even be practical?
Here you can find out what Richard Werkmeister still has to say about the role of unvaccinated people in the pandemic and how exactly he justifies the introduction of the 2G rule in the supermarket. *
The introduction of the 2G rule in the supermarket * would pose enormous challenges for operators. Representatives from Aldi, Edeka and Lidl had already spoken out – and in unison they fear a massive drop in sales *. In addition, the question arises as to whether unvaccinated people can be denied the right not to go shopping with the so-called “basic providers”. For Richard Werkmeister this would be the lesser of two evils. The chairman of the Cancer Society refers to cancer patients who are already suffering from the corona pandemic and considers the introduction of the 2G rule in the supermarket to be sensible in order to protect this vulnerable group. In Lower Saxony, the 2G rule will take effect in large parts of the retail sector on Saturday, December 11th *. As a result, only vaccinated and convalescent people can go shopping. It is currently even more relaxed on buses and trains – the 3G rule applies to these modes of transport nationwide
