Corona virus

Due to the exceptional situation caused by the increasing number of coronavirus infections, all official buildings of the Bonn City Administration will be closed to the public until further notice. In addition, from Sunday evening, 22 March, a ban on contact between groups of three or more people will apply in Bonn.

The number of confirmed coronavirus infections continues to rise. By Sunday, 29 March 2020, 10 am, a total of 259 cases had been reported to the public health department of the city of Bonn. 770 people are in quarantine. The development of case numbers in Bonn alone shows how important it is to observe the ban on contact and thus contribute to containing coronavirus infections. According to the Health Office, the number of confirmed cases rose from 133 to 259 between 22 March 2020 and 29 March 2020.

Contact ban from 3 persons on also in Bonn

From Sunday evening, 22 March 2020, a ban on contact between groups of three or more people will also apply in Bonn. The prime ministers of the federal states have agreed on a uniform ban on contact, which does not permit groups of three or more persons unless they belong to a family or household community. Local public transport and funerals are also excluded under the agreement.

For further information, please see the press release below.
