Regulations in the exploratorium berlin in times of Corona


Dear guests of the exploratorium,                                                                              

for events and rentals at the exploratorium, differentiated rules apply to prevent infection with Corona, which are subject to a constant process of change. The rules below, which are relevant for the exploratorium, correspond to the status as of 15 January 2022. Changes compared to previous versions are marked in blue.

The 2G plus regulation applies to most of our current activities in the exploratorium.

2G Plus means

  • that only vaccinated and recovered people are allowed. People who are only tested are not admitted.
  • In addition a mask has to be worn (also at your seat, FFP 2 is highly recommended)
  • AND all participants have to present an additional test.
  • For boostered persons the additional test is not compulsory, but recommended.
  • We generally recommend keeping a distance of 1.5 m between seats, especially as this is usually possible in the large halls of the exploratorium.

2G Plus applies

  • to all courses,and workshops of whatever size as well as to other events (concerts, rehearsals, open stages, talks) with more than 10 people.
  • Excluded from the 2G conditions are:
    • Persons who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons; these must prove a negative PCR test and vaccination eligibility by means of a medical certificate.
    • Children and adolescents between 6 and 18 years of age only need to be tested.
    • For pupils, regular testing in class is sufficient, but during holidays they need to be tested if they are not vaccinated or have recovered.
    • Children under 6 years of age do not need to be vaccinated or tested.
  • If the mask requirement cannot be complied with (e.g. when using wind instruments or when singing individually) it is imperative that the required distance is maintained.

The 3G regulation is now only allowed for very few formats.

3G means:

  • All persons present must be vaccinated or recovered or tested
  • and wear a medical or FFP2 mask (exception: children under 6 years).
  • For the 3G options that concern us, the mask may be removed in place.
  • We generally recommend keeping a distance of 1.5 m between seats, especially as this is usually possible in the large halls of the exploratorium.

3G applies

  • to events like rehearsals, talks, open stages and recitals with a maximum of 10 people.
  • At the exploratorium, this rule applies in particular to ensemble rehearsals and discussion formats. We do not apply it to open stages because we expect more than 10 people there.

For all activities, according to 2G as well as according to 3G, the following still applies:

  • Proof of vaccination, recovery or testing must be presented.
  • Please observe the hygiene rules (washing/disinfecting hands, cough & sneeze etiquette).
  • Rooms must be ventilated regularly for 10 minutes; even better: continuously
  • Attendance documentation of all participants is required either digitally in advance or on the forms on display.

For singing and movement, the following applies in deviation from the above conditions:

  • Singing in a group may take place indoors and outdoors under the 2G Plus regulations mentioned, and in the variant with additional testing.
  • In this case, boostered persons must also be additionally tested.
  • Wearing an FFP2 mask (also when singing) and a minimum distance of 2m between participants is strongly recommended.
  • Dancing/movement in a group may take place indoors according to the 2G conditions.
  • Masks are compulsory, but not during dancing.
  • In addition, either the minimum distance must be maintained or participants must be additionally tested. (Which variant is chosen is to be agreed uniformly for the whole group).

One more note:

Vaccinations only protect the vaccinated and not the others. Therefore, we still recommend that those who have been vaccinated and those who have recovered also get tested in order to prevent infections in the long term. This is also possible on site with us: we provide quick tests and ask for 2 Euros in the donation box.

We are pleased that we can still be active – despite restrictions – and ask you to observe the rules mentioned so as not to jeopardise this possibility.
