BR24Live: Lockdown extended, daycare centers and schools remain closed


At an early crisis summit, the prime ministers of the federal states agreed with Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) to extend the lockdown beyond January 31.  The  previous protective measures are to be extended to February 14th and tightened at some points, as Merkel said after hours of video switching in Berlin. Because the mutated virus poses a serious threat, as developments in Great Britain and Ireland have shown. “We have to act now.” It’s about the prevention.

This means that cultural and leisure facilities, restaurants and many shops will remain closed until at least mid-February. © The  contact restrictions should also continue to apply unchanged – members of a household are only allowed to meet one other person.

For the time being no opening of daycare centers and schools

According to Merkel, there was a long struggle for daycare centers and schools. Because of the risk of the spread of mutations, the closure of daycare centers and schools must be extended until mid-February. “Restrictive implementation” is important here, stressed the Chancellor. ©

OP, KN95 or FFP2 masks are mandatory

Söder: Rules remain in Bavaria
