From September 1, tests will not be reimbursed anymore (except for semi-vaccinated persons, children and some other groups).


Rules and recommendations

Currently, all amateur athletes who are organized in sports associations can play sports outdoors. However, the condition of a maximum of 50 people at the outdoor sports ground must be met.

Furthermore, athletes must undergo a PCR test (max. 7 days before) or a POC antigen test (max. 72 hours before), undergo a test at work or school (max. 72 hours before), have a certificate of illness or have a certificate issued by the Ministry of Health on the vaccination. In the case of testing children, the legal representative may prove by a solemn declaration that the child has been tested with a negative test result at school. Alternatively, on-site self-testing can be used. Children under 6 years of age do not have to meet the testing condition.

The organizer of the amateur sports training must keep the contact details of the participant (ideally the telephone number) for 30 days in case infection occurs and the participants have to be traced.

The organizers of mass events, which are expected to be attended by more than 1,000 people (daily), must notify the local relevant regional hygiene station, no later than 5 days before the start of the event.

This notice must include the date, time and place of the event, the expected number of participants and the telephone number of the event organizer.
