Rhineland-Palatinate opens from March
Dreyer wants to allow shopping with an appointment
Rhineland-Palatinate intends to cautiously reopen its retail business in the coming week. The new Corona Control Ordinance shows that commercial facilities will generally remain closed to customer traffic even after March 1st. According to the draft available to ntv, an exception applies when individual appointments are assigned. Prime Minister Malu Dreyer wants to present details at a press conference at 2 p.m.
The re must be an interval of at least 15 minutes between the appointments for ventilation and disinfection. All contacts must be recorded. According to ntv information, the regulation applies independently of the Prime Minister’s Conference on March 3rd.
In addition, the Rhineland-Palatinate state government wants to open hairdressers and other hygienic facilities as planned. This includes offers of medical foot care. As in autumn, hairdressers have to control the flow of customers by making appointments in advance. What is new is that a medical mask or a mask of the higher standards KN95, N95 or FFP2 must be worn during the appointment. Cosmetic studios, massage parlors, tattoo or piercing studios and similar businesses will remain closed.
Driving schools can open, zoos too
As expected, flower shops will also be able to open from March 1st. Nurseries and garden centers can also receive customers in their outdoor areas, provided the offer is limited to typical horticulture or plant sales.
The utilization is limited to a maximum of 25 percent of the normally permitted capacity. A distance requirement and a mask requirement apply to visitors.
The re is an obligation for medical masks or masks of the higher standards KN95, N95 or FFP2.
