Because of the persistently high number of new infections, a mouth and nose cover must be worn from Thursday in downtown Schwerin. The state capital published a general decree on Wednesday evening. The mask requirement applies until January 4th between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. Children up to school enrollment and people with mental and medical impairments or a disability are excluded. In addition, the serving of alcohol is prohibited in the entire city area. Alcohol may not be consumed on the streets, squares and areas of the city center where the mask requirement applies.
Distance lessons from grade 7
In Schwerin, distance lessons will also apply to all pupils from the 7th grade onwards from December 14th. With this measure, the Ludwigslust-Parchim district is also reacting to rising numbers. From next Monday in the week before the Christmas holidays, teaching will take place via the Internet. Students in grades 1 to 6, however, can still go to school regularly. According to the information, teachers in these grades must also wear a mask in class.
