Mask requirement extended again

Once again, the city of Bonn has extended the obligation to wear an everyday mask in the pedestrian zones of Bonn and Bad Godesberg as well as the main shopping streets in Beuel and Hardtberg. Analogous to the current Corona Protection Ordinance, the general order published on February 17, 2021, is valid up to and including February 21, 2021.

Mouth-to-nose covering (including scarves, shawls or other covering made of fabric) must be worn at the main train station, Bertha-von-Suttner-Platz and Konrad-Adenauer-Platz from 7 am to 10 pm. In all other areas, masks are compulsory between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m.  A corresponding card is available at www.bonn.de/coronavirus. However, a medical mask (surgical mask, FFP2 mask or comparable mask such as KN95/N95) must be worn when shopping, visiting the doctor, on buses and trains and at bus stops.

In addition, with the general order, the city extends the regulations for automatic quarantine for people who learn that they have been in contact with someone who has tested positive.
