News about mask requirements and events

In order to respond to the increasing number of infections, far-reaching contact restrictions are being introduced.

Among other things, there is talk of a supplementary mask requirement in public spaces and a curfew in restaurants from 11 p.m.

The number of visitors allowed at events will also experience a further restriction. “If the number of infections increases and at the latest from an incidence of 35, there should be a limit of 25 participants in the public and 15 participants in the private area”, quotes about the “Tagesschau” from the decision. If 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants are registered within a week, the permitted number of participants in public spaces will drop to ten people. A maximum of ten people from two households are allowed to come together for private events.

No agreement on the ban on accommodation
