Protection against coronavirus infections
In the last few weeks, it has been possible to reduce infections to a low level. At present, there are no signs of a newly emerging spread of infection. This is mainly due to the fact that the citizens have complied with the ban on contact as well as the hygiene and distance rules with a high degree of personal responsibility.
Due to the positive development of the last few weeks, further gradual easing of the restrictions can now be undertaken with caution. Every additional degree of opening makes it all the more important that distance and hygiene rules continue to be strictly adhered to, because the rising number of contacts leads to an increased risk of new infection chains.
Therefore, please follow the current regulations and measures. Thank you!
Important note: Staying in public areas is only permitted if a minimum distance of 1.5 metres to other persons is maintained.
When meeting other persons in public space, a mouth and nose cover/face mask must be worn.
From 10 June, meetings of up to ten people are permitted, regardless whether they belong to a household. Wherever possible, a minimum distance of 1.5 metres should be maintained between persons not living in a joint household.
Please read the regulations in detail in the currently valid version of the Corona Control Legal Regulation of the State of Rhineland-Palatinate.
