Berlin will introduce new Corona fines

There is no longer a requirement to stay in the apartment all the time - thus the previously possible fine of 10 to 100 euros no longer applies. Anyone who meets more than one other person who is not part of his or her own household in a public space risks paying a fine of 10 to 100 euros.

Those who do not keep the distance of 1.50 metres to others may have to pay 25 to 500 euros - this also applies to meadows and open spaces. The ban on visiting hospitals is still subject to a fine of 50 to 1000 euros. However, exceptions apply here. Anyone entering or returning from abroad must remain in domestic isolation for two weeks. Violations of this rule can cost 500 to 2500 euros.

Barbecuing or offering open meals was already prohibited. Now this is subject to a fine: 25 to 500 euros.

From 4 May, open-air meetings of up to 50 people will be allowed. However, the assembly management is responsible for ensuring the rules of distance and hygiene.

The basic principle remains the same: the amount of the catalogue of fines is based on three criteria: What damage is caused to public health? Does the person show insight or is there a repeat offence?
