Because supermarkets, discounters, drugstores, pharmacies and petrol stations are part of the basic supply, they are excluded from the 3G rule. There are no access restrictions. Of course, there are no rules here either.

In some federal states, customers are counted at the entrance. In addition, shopping trolleys or shopping baskets are compulsory in some places. The stores want to get a better overview of how many people are actually staying with them.
