This page gives an overview of the current Corona guidelines and regulations in Berlin, as well as general information around these guidelines (Status: 28 April 2022).

When holding the congress, the requirements and corona protection regulations in force at the time of the event will be implemented and compliance with them ensured. Currently, there are no legal regulations for the implementation of corona protection measures. Nevertheless, the health of our participants is paramount, so planning will be done prudently. Detailed information will be sent to registered participants shortly before the congress and will also be published here.
