In the Corona pandemic, the Berlin Club Commission called for a long-term solution to prevent closures in the event of new waves. The solutions for the fall are there, said the chairwoman of the club umbrella organization, Pamela Schobeß, on Monday. “However, if you think that you only rely on distance and masks in the cultural sector, you will also accept closures again. That would be frivolous and a catastrophe for the Berlin venues.”

According to Schobess, good ventilation systems and PCR tests offer security. The club commission referred to various tests with PCR tests and optimized ventilation. The pilot project was very successful.
