In the case of 2G+, a negative PCR test must also be available.
In case of Booster | Booster+ the person must already have a third vaccination (and in case of Booster+ additionally a negative PCR test). If a person has been vaccinated 2x and has recovered within the last 180 days, this counts as proof for the Booster (or with negative PCR-test for Booster+).
