Mask requirement at schools loosened, tests remain

A low number of new infections with the coronavirus in Baden-Württemberg brings further easings of restrictions. From Monday, 21 June, the obligation to wear masks at schools will be loosened. From that day on, pupils in districts with less than 50 newly infected persons per 100,000 inhabitants in a week will no longer have to wear a mask outdoors. The mask can also be dispensed within class if the number of new infections in the district per 100,000 inhabitants in a week is below 35 (as is currently the case in the district of Tübingen) and there is no case of covid infection at a school for a fortnight. Masks are still compulsory outside the classrooms. The compulsory testing twice a week, hygiene rules and ventilation regulations also remain in place, the Ministry of Education wrote in a letter to the schools.
