    Starting Wednesday "wristband solution" for the retail trade and gastronomy

    Starting Wednesday, Dec. 15, the state capital Wiesbaden will launch the so-called "wristband solution" for retail and gastronomy.

    Anyone who has then successfully proven their vaccination or recovered status at the entrances of the Christmas Market or Children's Christmas Market (Sternschnuppenmark; Kindersternschnuppenmarkt) on Schlossplatz or Luisenplatz can receive a wristband. However, proof is only possible with a vaccination or recovered certificate. The wristband can then be presented for admission to stores and gastronomic establishments.

    The wristbands are a voluntary offer. In addition to the wristbands, individual identification with the vaccination certificate in conjunction with an official ID is still possible in the retail trade and gastronomy.

    A survey by the Department of Economics and Employment in Wiesbaden showed that retailers wanted such a solution. "It became very clear that trade and gastronomy expect a great relief from this. In recent days, it has been seen that the current controls of each customer in the individual stores lead to considerable effort. Showing a wristband is much faster than pulling out the vaccination certificate or showing the QR code. We very much hope that this will reduce the lines in front of store entrances to make the difficult situation for trade and gastronomy easier," says Mayor and Head of the Department of Economic Affairs Dr. Oliver Franz.
