The Coronavirus Crisis: New relaxations - new information obligations

The decreasing number of coronavirus cases in Germany has led to a gradual easing of the strict safety measures and, depending on the federal state, citizens are again allowed to visit a number of public meeting places, in particular restaurants and pubs. The operator of such meeting places is obliged to implement a concept for hygiene measures, including, among other rules, the keeping of guest lists. Guest lists are supposed to make it possible to quickly and comprehensively identify those who have had contact with infected individuals.

Since this involves the collection and storage of personal data, the operators are faced with the challenge of complying with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

In the following, we explain the obligations associated with this and on whom these obligations are imposed (as of 4 June 2020).
