The aim of the wristband scheme is to simplify 2G access control in the retail sector on the basis of the current Corona Ordinance of the State of Hesse. Customers who can provide proof of their 2G status can receive a wristband. Wearing the wristband is voluntary and no data is collected. The wristband is valid at all participating sales outlets in the city. To prevent possible misuse, the colours of the wristbands will change weekly.


What is the 2G wristband?

The 2G wristband is a non-transferable control band that visibly documents the 2G status.


Does the wristband replace the proof of vaccination or of recovery?

The wristband does not replace the actual vaccination certificate or proof of recovery, you must carry this with you in the original together with an official identification document.


Why do I need the 2G wristband?

It is optional to issue the wristbands and to accept them as a substitute for a 2G check at the shop. 2G status checks may occur again at any time.


Where can I use the wristbands?

You can use the wristbands in retail outlets throughout the city.


How and where can I get a 2G wristband?

After presenting valid proof of 2G once at one or more issuing points, customers receive the 2G wristband.
