Senate Berlin adopts shorter Covid quarantine period – Berlin.de

The quarantine period for coronavirus-infected persons in Berlin will be shortened. The Senate will pass a resolution to this effect at a meeting on Tuesday (May 3, 2022).

The plan is that the infected person should remain quarantined for only 5 days if he is asymptomatic for 48 hours and can show a negative test. Previously, it required 7-10 days of quarantine based on various criteria.

Agreement between federal and state governments

The Senate had already put this issue on the agenda a week ago, but postponed it again due to unresolved questions. Most recently, the federal government and the German state health minister have also re-discussed and agreed in principle on shortening the deadline. Ray cites the increased immunity of the population and the mild course of the disease as a result of the planned shortening of the isolation period.
