The SPD, Greens and FDP want to introduce a 3G regulation in the workplace in view of the steep rise in corona infection numbers.
Berlin – SPD, Greens and FDP want to introduce a 3G regulation in the workplace in view of the sharply increasing number of corona infections. According to this, only employees would come to their workplace who can prove that they have been vaccinated, have recovered or have just been tested. “There is a consensus among the SPD, Greens and FDP that we want to push this forward,” said the First Parliamentary Managing Director of the FDP parliamentary group, Marco Buschmann, in Berlin on Monday. In view of the situation, this is an “appropriate course of action”.
Buschmann also confirmed that the three parties currently working to form a traffic light coalition want to return to free corona tests for all citizens. The FDP has always considered the expiry of the free citizen tests in October to be a mistake.
The FDP politician vigorously rejected the impression that the countries no longer had the necessary legal basis for measures to contain the pandemic. This is still given by the Infection Protection Act. And the legislative package of the SPD, Greens and FDP with the new regulation will be in force in good time before the legal status of the pandemic emergency of national scope expires in November. “There will be no legal ambiguity.”
Buschmann emphasized: “The instrument case is on the table. At the moment it’s still the old one. And when the epidemic emergency runs out, it will be the reduced one. ” However, it will only be reduced by measures that have either already been declared in court to be disproportionate and unconstitutional, “or which we consider to be inappropriate and disproportionate”. This included, for example, comprehensive company closings or the closing of schools and universities on a large scale.
The FDP politician does not see a need for a new corona meeting between the prime ministers and the incumbent federal government. The top priority now is to ensure safety in old people’s and nursing homes, to improve the vaccination rate and to organize boosters. “The instruments required for this are known. And the federal states can also use these instruments. ” (dpa)
