Baden-Württemberg From now on, the stay in public is limited to members of one's own and another household, to a maximum number of 10 persons. All citizens are required to reduce their contacts with other people (outside their own household) to an absolutely necessary minimum.

From an incidence value of over 50, a closing hour is already in effect from 10 p.m. in the gastronomy sector, among others. Private celebrations must then be limited to five people or the members of two households, regardless of whether the celebration is public or private. In regions where the number of new infections per 100,000 inhabitants is exceeded within seven days, events may only be held with a maximum of 50 participants, and a curfew applies from 9 p.m. In the risk area Berchtesgadener Land, leaving one's own home for 14 days is currently only permitted for compelling reasons.

However, adults must keep the minimum distance to other families. Children under 12 years of age are not subject to the two-home rule in private apartments. This means: playing together or a child's birthday party are possible at home as well as outdoors.
