Further protective measures

Since Saturday, October 17, only a maximum of five persons (previously ten) from different households will be allowed to meet in public space. In the entire city, alcohol may no longer be sold between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m., and there will be a closing hour for restaurants serving alcohol from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m.

In addition, the fact that the 50 limit for new infections per 100,000 inhabitants has been exceeded in the past seven days means that further measures are now being taken under the state's Corona Protection Ordinance.

These include:

  • A maximum of 500 participants (previously 1000) at outdoor cultural events
  • Maximum 250 participants (500 so far) for cultural events in closed rooms

The city's additional protection measures were published in the  official gazette on Friday, October 16, 2020  by way of a general ruling and will initially apply up to and including October 31, 2020 (only in German language).
