- The decision comes after a venue owner sued the city claiming the rules were disproportionate against vaccinated people.
Berlin's ban on indoor dancing has been repealed, for now, when it comes to vaccinated people or people who have recently recovered from Covid-19.
As RBB reports, the court ruled today that the city's Covid-19 rules were fair and sensible but "likely to be disproportionate" when it comes to people who have been vaccinated or recently recovered.
For now, that means that the ban on indoor dancing has been lifted, though exclusively for people who fall into those two camps—a negative Covid-19 test result would not be enough to circumvent the indoor dancing ban, because people who have not been vaccinated or already had the disease would not have the proper protection against infection or potential spread.
The decision comes after a venue owner sued the government over its Covid-19 rules. Today's court decision can still be appealed at the Higher Administrative Court Of Berlin-Brandenburg.
