Coronavirus: regular operation in daycare centres from 17 August

According to the announcement of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, the day-care facilities in Bonn will reopen in regular operation from Monday, August 17, 2020. This means that from this date the contractually regulated scope of childcare will apply again.

The care continues to be provided in accordance with the requirements of infection control. For example, children who show symptoms of illness or whose parents or other persons from the household show symptoms of COVID-19 may still not be looked after.

The general protective measures designed to prevent the spread of the coronavirus will also continue to apply in accordance with the provisions of the country. All adults (caregivers, parents and others) must therefore continue to maintain a minimum distance of 1.5 metres between themselves. When dealing with other adults, they must also always wear a mouth-nose cover if the distance of 1.5 metres cannot be maintained. Traceability of any possible occurrence of infection must also continue to be guaranteed. Furthermore, necessary hygiene measures must continue to be implemented.

The state emphasises that depending on the development of the infection, recommendations of the Robert Koch Institute or further scientific and empirical findings, new restrictions could always occur. Therefore, nationwide regulations cannot be ruled out at present.
