The federal and state governments have agreed to extend the lockdown and take further measures. What does this mean for Rhineland-Palatinate? Prime Minister Dreyer wants to explain this in the morning. The SWR will be there live from 9 a.m.
Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) and the prime ministers of the federal states agreed on Thursday night to extend the lockdown to combat the corona pandemic to March 28. But there should be numerous possibilities to open the lockdown step by step.
From next week, the federal government will also cover the costs of a corona rapid test per week for every citizen. In order to accelerate the slowly running corona vaccinations, general practitioners and specialists should be more involved than before at the beginning of April at the latest.
In the run-up to the meeting, Prime Minister Malu Dreyer (SPD) called for the contact restrictions to be relaxed. Today she wants to explain the resolutions of the night in detail and how they are to be implemented in Rhineland-Palatinate.
In the night of Thursday, the State Chancellery had already announced that Rhineland-Palatinate was planning further “concrete opening steps” from the lockdown from next Monday. For example, the bookshops should be able to reopen.
