The city administration will successively offer its services again on a larger scale, as the crisis management team decided on Friday, 24 April 2020. "Our aim is to expand or resume the fulfilment of the tasks - especially when these have been reduced in recent weeks due to the significant time restrictions - and no longer to reduce them exclusively to what is absolutely necessary," explains Lord Mayor Ashok Sridharan. "It is still necessary to find a balance between protecting employees and citizens from infection on the one hand and maintaining or resuming operations on the other.
From 4 May onwards, appointments will no longer be made exclusively for urgent and important matters. Each appointment request will first be examined to see whether it can be dealt with in a way other than the personal way. If this is not possible and cannot be postponed, the city administration will make an appointment possible while observing the distance and hygiene regulations. In addition, the specialist departments of the administration will check whether services can in future also be provided online in principle.
For health protection reasons, all administrative buildings will continue to be accessible by appointment only. The access controls will remain in place. The administration can still be reached by telephone and e-mail. All details can be found on the city's website at .
From Monday, 27 April 2020, the city administration staff will be equipped with makeshift masks. As a first step, around 1000 employees will receive one of the self-made mouth-nose protection masks as a priority, with additional employees receiving them as needed. The masks are to be worn in direct contact with citizens, especially in areas where the distance cannot be maintained or where there is no protection against spitting. It is recommended that the masks be worn when entering and moving around in the service buildings.
Controls of the city ordinance service
According to the city administration, the owners of the shops have been very disciplined this week. The relaxed opening rules and associated regulations are generally very well observed and complied with. Only two shops had to close - one too large retail shop and one nail studio. From Monday, 20 April, until midday on Friday, 24 April 2020, the City Planning Service had 174 assignments in connection with the Corona Protection Ordinance, which resulted in 65 complaints for violations of the contact ban.
Since the restrictions imposed as a result of the corona crisis came into force, the city ordinance service has reported a total of 1869 assignments to date.
