Shops closed over Easter

The supermarkets and discounters in Baden-Württemberg are closed on Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday. The state government had planned otherwise, but received criticism from the churches. Unions also asked workers to relax on the holidays. In some cases, shops have extended their opening hours to avoid crowds. Therefore, they also ask customers to plan their purchases and, if possible, not to go to the shops on Thursday or Saturday. In this way, crowds should be avoided, and it should also be possible to keep your distance. tun040601 Impressionen zum Leben in Zeiten der Corona-Pandemie: Foto: tünews INTERNATIONAL; Kerstin Markl,… Read More

I felt sad when I saw places that were full of pedestrians and visitors three weeks ago. Now they are frighteningly silent and empty, defying the bright sun that usually lured people out of their houses. At the same time, I’m happy that people are staying at home. They are following the rules for protecting public health. We are all responsible for those in need of protection who the virus may endanger much more… Read More
