Scholz had previously announced that he is in favor of compulsory vaccination for all Germans. It must be approved by parliament before the end of the year and come into effect from February 2022.
The leaders are now looking at a comprehensive package of measures, German media write. For example, people may only be able to access non-essential shops, restaurants, cinemas and theaters if they can show proof of inoculation or cure.
For the catering industry, cinemas and theaters, an additional negative test can even be requested, the so-called 2GPlus. Private meetings are considerably limited in a draft proposal for people who have not been vaccinated, they are allowed to meet a maximum of two people from another household, inside or outside.
In the video below we answer three questions about 2G: because how effective is it really?
The number of attendees at events is likely to be severely limited. For events held indoors, a limit of up to 2,500 visitors is considered. At football matches, an occupancy rate of 30 percent is used, up to a maximum of 10,000 supporters.
Schools in Germany will remain open, but all students and teachers must wear face masks.
