The current spread of the coronavirus has far-reaching consequences for our community. In recent weeks and months many hosts have been unable to receive guests in their accommodation or host an experience due to travel restrictions. Now tourism is opening up in many places and is accompanied by increased safety requirements and hygiene regulations, which can vary from state to state.
In order to make it easier for hosts to find out about the new regulations, we have compiled an overview of the information pages of the federal government and the federal states. Please note that this list does not claim to be complete or accurate and that the regulations may change over time. Airbnb assumes no liability in this respect. We recommend that you contact the relevant authorities if you have any questions.
You can find additional information on responsible hosting in our Help Center.

State support measures for the economy
In order to counter the economic consequences of the coronavirus, governments and state agencies have announced numerous support measures both at federal level and in some cases at the level of the federal states. These include, in particular, measures to improve the liquidity of the self-employed and companies. Further measures are planned. Please refer to the official portals of your city, state, and federal government. Important information can be found here:
