 The  numbers are not going back any further, they are actually increasing a bit,” said Senate spokesman Marcel Schweitzer at the state press conference on Tuesday. “And the virus mutations are spreading.” In Hamburg there are currently 13 confirmed cases of new corona infections with a mutant. 311 suspected cases are currently being sequenced in laboratories. “We expect that there will be a lot more cases.”

Mask requirement on playgrounds, at the Alster and landing bridges

Against this background, the Senate has not decided any further easing steps – on the contrary: the mask requirement is to be tightened in the Hanseatic city. In the future, you should wear a mask wherever you cannot keep the minimum distance, i.e. wherever it is tight: “In playgrounds there should be a mask requirement for adults,” said Schweitzer. In addition, masks should also be worn in tourist places – around the Alster, on the Elbe, the landing stages and in the city park.

 The  ordinance will be adapted very promptly, said Schweitzer, it should apply “at the latest” at the weekend. ©

 The re will be priority controls by the police. “Take the masks with you when you have to leave the house,” advised Schweitzer.

Flower shops and garden centers remain closed


 The  tightening of the mask requirement is also a consequence of the past weekend, when in good weather in many places in Hamburg people without masks and the necessary distance would have come. Relaxations – such as an early opening of the flower shops and garden centers, which has often been called for, the red-green Senate has not decided. “We cannot answer for that,” said Schweitzer.

Incidence continued to rise
