According to the Saxon Decree for Protection Against Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 (SächsCoronaSchVO) of 27 November 2020, from 1 December 2020 restrictions on movement will apply in coronavirus hotspots (seven-day average incidence of more than 200 per 100,000 inhabitants for five or more consecutive days). It is however still possible to carry out professional activities. You do not require a permit to travel to work. It is sufficient if you can prove your identity, for example by carrying your employee ID card or business card together with your usual identity card or passport. If required, you can also use the sample employer’s certificate from the Department of Human Resources. The certificate should be signed by the head of the institution or (if deemed appropriate) by the employee’s immediate superior. The Head of Administration and Finance, Birgit Dräger, recommends that all superiors keep a list of certificates issued so that proof is available if necessary.
