Meanwhile, due to the further increase in coronavirus infections in recent days, the North Rhine-Westphalian state government issued further decrees last weekend, initially valid until 19 April 2020.
In order to implement this, the City of Bonn will publish a general ordinance in the Official Gazette on Monday, 16 March 2020. According to the decree, all public events are now prohibited. Initially, the state had prohibited events with at least 1000 visitors last week, but now the decree includes all events with fewer visitors. According to the NRW state government, events that serve to maintain public safety and order or to provide for the public good are particularly excluded.
All bars, clubs, discotheques, theatres, cinemas and museums, fitness studios, swimming pools, adult education centres, music schools, other public and private educational institutions and prostitution companies will be closed or will have to discontinue their services. Meetings in sports clubs, in sports and leisure facilities, in amusement arcades, casinos and betting shops are also prohibited.
Restaurants and pubs remain open. Like hotels for the hospitality of overnight guests, they must restrict access and are subject to strict regulations. For example, tables must be at least two metres apart and visitors must be registered with their contact details.
Citizens returning from trips from risk areas are not allowed to visit community facilities (e.g. day-care centres, schools), hospitals, vocational training centres or universities for 14 days.
As of Monday, 7 p.m., there are 55 confirmed cases and 529 proven influenza diseases in Bonn.
