German record champion Bayern Munich tightened all corona measures before the start of training on Sunday, given the current pandemic situation. In consultation with the Munich health department, the club announced on Thursday that “the tests will be much more closely aligned and all hygiene measures will be intensified”.
During the winter break, booster vaccinations were mainly carried out at FC Bayern as a central measure to protect against corona infections or serious forms of corona infection. “All players, coaches and staff for whom this was already possible have received the booster vaccination. The rest have recovered or been vaccinated,” says team doctor and cardiologist Roland Schmidt.
In recent weeks there has been a lot of excitement about unvaccinated stars in Munich. The focus was on international Joshua Kimmich, who had to rest for a few weeks.
“With the hygiene concept adapted to the current situation and the extensive testing strategy, we want to reduce the risk of corona contamination as much as possible. We will also ensure a reduction in close contact situations outside the football field,” emphasized Schmidt. The measures would also relate to compliance with distance rules or wearing masks.
