UPDATE: New COVID rules for Sunday morning meeting at KIS. These rules will be in place starting Sunday 29 August.

"Dear groups,
there is a new infection protection ordinance , which also affects self-help group meetings. We therefore had to revise the hygiene rules for the use of our HIS group rooms and are also obliged to point them out to you and to have you confirm compliance with them.

The following applies from now on:
- "3G rule" : All participants in a self-help group meeting (which are still considered an event) in an indoor area must either be demonstrably vaccinated, recovered or tested .

- Each group must name one or more responsible persons who will review the evidence relating to "3G" . Please let us know who will take on this role in your group. Those responsible must sign the Corona user agreement and send it to us or bring it over to us! This is how you confirm to us that you have taken note of the rules of use. Without this assurance, the group cannot meet.

- The presence must still be documented individually for each meeting by each person writing their personal data on the contact data sheets provided for this purpose, which are then collected in an envelope for each meeting and thrown into the HIS mailbox, labeled with the current date.

The HIS keeps these envelopes under lock and key and destroys them unopened after two weeks, provided there is no infection in the group.

- Furthermore, the regulations for maintaining the minimum distance apply, so nothing changes in the permitted number of participants per meeting or room . In Prenzlauer Berg, the HIS group room can be used by up to 8 people. [Note: we can meet outside in the courtyard if there are more than 8 people]

- A (FFP2 or medical) mask must still be worn around the house; the mask may only be removed when sitting in the seat."
