The restrictions on the number of people who are allowed to gather in one location will in principle continue to be 200 and the rules requiring social distancing of at least one metre and mask wearing are unchanged. However, public swimming pools and health and fitness facilities are permitted to run at maximum capacity subject to the conditions of their operating licenses. The requirement of maintaining a distance of at least one metre is abolished at sports events and stage art events in addition to further relaxations detailed below.

Rapid tests and large events - entry into force on the 3rd of September

The Chief Epidemiologist proposes the use of rapid tests in relation to large events but does not recommend the use of self-testing as they are not accurate enough. Work on the adoption of the proposals will be carried out in the coming days in order to make it possible to accommodate 500 sitting guests in a compartment during an event with no social distancing limits subject to the use of rapid tests. These arrangements will be carried out in close cooperation with those hosting large events. The provisions of the new regulation about restrictions on gatherings relating to the use of rapid tests at events take effect on the 3rd of September and will then be presented specifically.
