Starting July 1st, 2020, new regulations to combat the corona pandemic will apply in Baden-Württemberg. The Corona Regulation expressly respects the importance of freedom of assembly under Article 8 of the Basic Law. In principle, there are no limits to the number of participants. However, the organizers must work to ensure that the demonstrators abide by the distance rule. The authorities can also request certain hygiene measures. However, the law also authorizes the authorities to prohibit such meetings “provided that protection against infections cannot be achieved in any other way, in particular due to conditions”. This is stated in paragraph 11 of the ordinance of the state government on infection protection measures against the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus of June 23, 2020.
