Based on the new catalog of measures by the Bavarian State Government, which came into effect on 6 November, the SPS 2021 will take place in Nuremberg, Germany at the end of November under the German 2G conditions for those that have been vaccinated against, or have recovered from COVID-19.
In its press release, the Bavarian State Chancellery cites «a threatening overload of the healthcare system» as the reason for the adjustment of the measures. This is primarily due to the number of non-vaccinated COVID-19 patients, who have more severe symptoms. The new series of measures coming into force today means, among other things, that for the safety of all participants, events may only be conducted as a German 2G model, i.e. a visit to the exhibition is only possible for those fully vaccinated against, or who have recovered from the virus. In this case, the regulations for mask wearing and social distancing no longer apply.
It should also be noted that under the new regulation, only persons inoculated with vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) are considered fully vaccinated. A list of the relevant vaccines can be found on the official website of the European Union: ec.europa.eu.
