Corona: Increased transport in school traffic until Christmas 2020

The 23 additional bus trips that have been used since mid-August and early September to equalize school traffic during the Corona pandemic will be offered until the 2020 Christmas vacations.

The city administration has informed the 27 secondary schools, including all vocational colleges in the city of Bonn, which are reached by these supplementary trips. On school days there are 16 additional trips in the morning and seven additional trips in the afternoon. Busses are used on all of the supplemental trips - not vehicles of the Bonn public utility company - which are clearly marked by signs or digital displays. The buses on streetcar line 61 stop either directly at the streetcar stop or, if it cannot be reached by buses, at the regular replacement stops.

The city of Bonn has submitted an application for funding to the state for the additional offer. The measure is fully funded by the state.

Outdoor gastronomy

Bonn's catering trade is allowed to set up tables and chairs for its guests on car parking spaces until 31 March 2021. A corresponding emergency decision by city director Wolfgang Fuchs became effective with the second signature of a city councillor. The administration will not charge any additional fees for the extended period. In order to protect their guests, the gastronomy can install mobile roofs or walls - such as parasols or awnings; heating mushrooms may also be set up.

As early as September 2020, the city administration had decided to waive fees for the use of other public areas by restaurant owners, with the exception of car parking spaces, until the end of March 2021.

Current figures

As of Tuesday, October 13, 2020, 151 people in Bonn are demonstrably infected with the coronavirus. Since February 28, 2020, a total of 1494 people have tested positive for the coronavirus. Nine people have died in connection with Covid-19, 1334 people have recovered.

In the past seven days, 156 new infections have been registered in Bonn; this corresponds to 47.27 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants. This means that the emergency mechanism introduced by the federal and state governments against rising infection rates of 35 new cases per 100,000 inhabitants within seven days - corresponding to 115 persons - has been exceeded. The limit of 50 infections per 100,000 inhabitants in the past seven days is 165 cases in Bonn.

On Tuesday, October 13, 2020, a person who tested positive and is not from Bonn was reported at the Johanes-Schule.
