Lord Mayor Ashok Sridharan explains:
"The City Council has taken note of the decree and takes it seriously, of course. In order to apply the decree, the city administration is faced with a whole series of questions, which it will ask the NRW state government to answer at short notice on Wednesday, 11 March 2020, e.g. regarding liability and claims for damages. A major problem is considered to be that the decree does not provide for a time limit. The city administration assumes that it will regulate the implementation of the decree by means of a general administrative order. Smaller events will be examined on a case-by-case basis."
