“We must not become careless now,” said Winfried Kretschmann, the Minister-President of Baden-Württemberg. The number of people infected with the corona virus cannot be allowed to increase. Therefore, Chancellor Angela Merkel and the heads of the federal states agreed on “a few small steps” (Kretschmann) on Thursday. Services and prayer events are allowed to take place again from the first week of May. Museums, exhibitions, memorials, zoos and botanical gardens might open during the coming week. Children’s playgrounds have been reopened. However, there are requirements to insure nobody gets infected. Dentists are allowed to treat patients as usual. Distance and hygiene rules as well as the mask obligation still apply. The impact of the relaxation will be monitored before new ones are adopted. On 6th May the Prime Ministers and the Chancellor will discuss further openings of schools and day-care centers, smaller celebrations and gastronomy. One thing is already certain: major events such as festivals and city festivals will remain prohibited until the end of August.
