Only medical masks are allowed in shops and on public transport. In the local election campaign, the parties are experimenting with digital formats.  The  FAZ-Hauptwache looks at the topics of the day.

Ggood evening,
what will the new week bring in the region? © The  mask rules announced a few days ago now apply: With a piece of fabric, however beautiful it may be, you are now not allowed to go into a shop, bus or train. Only the widespread medical mouth and nose protection are allowed and, better still, the FFP-2 masks that have recently been seen more and more frequently, with which one always looks a bit like having a beak. But beauty doesn’t really matter. © The  situation on the corona front remains serious despite the slight decrease in the number of infections.

Another serious issue: on Thursday, the verdict in the trial of the murder of the Kassel District President Walter Lübcke will be pronounced.

© The  local election campaign is dragging on. Slightly increased receipt of press releases from city councilors who make tough demands or criticize the political opponent with harsh words. Otherwise little happens, and there are only seven weeks until March 14th. Colleague Martin Benninghoff asked the parties in Frankfurt what they are planning to do in the election campaign. In a nutshell: You experiment with what is at least feasible on the Internet. And hope that at least in the home straight it will still be possible to do a little street election campaign.

Everything is different this year, also at the universities. How do you take an exam these days, can you write exams with a mask? Sascha Zoske has asked around the university landscape and reports in the Monday edition.
