  • Bremen Senate passes new Corona regulation
  • Several measures will be extended until the end of June
  • Obligation to test at daycare centers should be abolished

The Bremen Senate has passed a new Corona regulation. Accordingly, the obligation to test in day-care centers should be abolished. Other measures, however, were extended until June 30th. The following protective measures should continue to apply in Bremen:

1 Mask requirement

  • In medical practices, hospitals, day clinics, outpatient and inpatient care facilities (persons over the age of 14 only fulfill the obligation to wear a mouth and nose cover in these facilities by wearing an FFP2 mask or a mask of the “KN95/N95” standard)
  • In public transport, both for passengers and for staff
  • in shelters for the homeless and in communal accommodation for asylum seekers

2 testing obligation

  • in hospitals, outpatient and inpatient care facilities
  • in shared accommodation for asylum seekers
  • in correctional facilities

3 Isolation duration for infected

The isolation period for asymptomatic people is five days. Anyone who has symptoms must be symptom-free for 48 hours before isolation ends.

However, the corresponding committee of the Bremen Parliament still has to approve the plans. According to the citizenship, an appointment is currently being sought this week. If this does not come about, the Senate can still announce the new regulation, said a spokeswoman. The public can then intervene later if necessary. The current regulation expires at the end of the week.
