The following guidelines have been created by a variety of Bavarian gastronomic institutions as part of an official reopening concept which assures that restaurants will open safely, step by step:

  • Give your data for contact tracing in case there is an infection detected later.
  • When making reservations or appearing at a restaurant, one person per household should share their data for guest registration.
  • Wear a mask throughout the establishment, except when you are sitting at the table.
  • Maintain a minimum distance of 1.5 meters between yourself, other guests and service personnel.
  • Persons who are currently infected with SARS-CoV-2.
  • Persons who have had contact within the last 14 days to someone infected with COVID-19 (does not apply to medical and nursing personnel who have had protected contact to COVID-19 patients).
  • Those returning from a risk region where quarantine is required.
  • Persons with COVID-19 symptoms (acute, unspecific general symptoms, loss of smell or taste, any level of respiratory symptoms).
  • Persons who develop symptoms while visiting a restaurant must leave it immediately.

In order to contact guests in the case of a later COVID-19 infection of a guest or the personnel, the restaurant owner/operator must collect the following information:

  • Last and first name
  • Aclear means of contact (telephone number, email address or home address)
  • For each household and
  • With information about the exact time spent in the restaurant.

The host may collect the data electronically. The city of Nuremberg uses the  Luca-App for this purpose.
