Interior Minister Sabine Sütterlin-Waack (CDU) and Culture Minister Karin Prien (CDU) have the framework conditions for the model projects in Kiel Sport and Culture presented. For a district or municipality to be able to participate, the incidence there must be below 100 for at least one week. Club sports should be possible again as part of these Schleswig-Holstein projects from April 19 – despite the corona pandemic. Districts, cities and municipalities can apply with a concept until April 7th.
Associations can also apply
Individual applications from associations organized in the State Sports Association and municipal institutions such as swimming pools should also be possible. “After discussions with sports associations and municipalities, we are convinced that, with requirements and intelligent concepts, it is possible to practice sport responsibly even in times of pandemics,” said Sütterlin-Waack.
Athletes need the latest corona test
In addition to restrictions on group sizes to 24 people outdoors and 12 in halls, a protection and hygiene concept as well as IT-supported tracking are necessary, according to the Minister of the Interior. Anyone who wants to take part in the training as an athlete must present a daily, negative corona test.
The application deadline is April 7th
There are similar requirements for culture. Up to three projects that offer events at least once a week can apply for each district or urban district. The application deadline is April 7th there too. It should also start on April 19th. Minister Prien emphasized: “The cultural workers in the state urgently need a perspective. This is not just about financial support, but – even more important – about making cultural work and life possible again at all.”
Some cultural concepts exist
The model projects are intended to document that cultural events are also possible in times of pandemics with the help of an orderly test strategy. According to Prien, there are already corresponding concepts from the theaters in Kiel and Lübeck as well as from the Low German Stage in Neumünster.
Scientific support provided
The model projects for sport and culture are initially limited to four weeks. They should be scientifically monitored in coordination with the health authorities. On Thursday, Minister of Economic Affairs Bernd Buchholz (FDP) had already explained the conditions under which corona model projects in tourism can come about.
