Bayern Munich: Joshua Kimmich, Serge Gnabry and Jamal Musiala, not vaccinated, affected by the new Covid rules
Bayern Munich are forced to split their team with unvaccinated stars BANNED from visiting hotels under new Covid rules in Germany, meaning Joshua Kimmich, Serge Gnabry and Jamal Musiala must go to games separately.
- Joshua Kimmich, Serge Gnabry and Jamal Musiala are not vaccinated against Covid
- Bavaria is suffering a sharp drop in Covid infection cases at 554.2 per 100,000
- As a result of the increase, the state has imposed a ‘lockdown for the unvaccinated’
Bayern Munich stars Joshua Kimmich, Serge Gnabry and Jamal Musiala must separate from the rest of the team, as Bavaria tightens its restrictions due to an increase in Covid cases.
The trio are not vaccinated and as a result have been banned from staying in the same hotel as their teammates before a match and must also travel to games separately, according to Kicker.
Bayern face an away game in Augsburg in the Bundesliga on Friday night and, following new sanctions, have had to modify their plans accordingly.

Jamal Musiala (right) has also been affected because he is also not vaccinated against the coronavirus.
There will be no such problem on Tuesday when the German giants head to Ukraine to face Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League, but they will face the same hurdle when they return to Germany.
The problem could be particularly disturbing for Julian Nagelsmann’s side, as they also have a tough showdown against rivals Borussia Dortmund on December 4.
However, there is nothing they can do as Bavaria seeks to counter the rise of the coronavirus.
The southern German state has been battling rising Covid infections and mounting pressure on intensive care units, which are approaching 600 per 100,000.

On Tuesday, the number of Covid infections recorded in the state reached 554.2 per 100,000 people in seven days, far more than the seven-day national incidence of 312.4. As a result, the hospital’s stoplight warning system is now red, its highest possible level, according to The store.
Bavarian Minister President Markus Soder said there was no choice but to implement a “kind of lockdown for the unvaccinated” due to mounting pressure on hospitals and medical personnel.
One of these measures includes that unvaccinated people in Bavaria are prohibited from visiting restaurants and hotels, hence the recently imposed restrictions by Kimmich, Gnabry and Musiala.
