COVID – 19 RESTRICTIONS UPDATE

We are working hard to keep up with the German government’s Covid restrictions, and posting them regularly here for easy access. The latest, announced on 24 March, is quite restrictive as a partial lockdown throughout the Rhein Main area through 18 April. The current restrictions are:

  • Shopping: instead of "Click and Meet," only "Click and Collect" is possible again. This means that customers can now only order products in retail stores online and then pick them up on site. Bookstores, garden centers and DIY stores, among others, will remain open.
  • Gastronomy: Overnight stays in hotels and guesthouses for tourist purposes remain prohibited. Restaurants are still only allowed to offer food and drinks for pick-up.
  • Recreation: Zoos, botanical gardens and outdoor museums remain open. Indoor areas, on the other hand, are closed to the public. Gyms remain open and may be visited by appointment. Body-related services, such as beauty salons, remain permitted.
       
  • Private meetings: The previous contact rule continues to apply, meaning two households up to a maximum of five people are allowed to meet. Children up to 14 years of age do not count.
       
  • Sports: Outdoor sports for children up to and including 14 years of age in groups remain possible. Individual sports are possible indoors and outdoors in accordance with the applicable contact rule. In amateur soccer, the 2020/21 season will be cancelled and annulled. The Presidium of the Hessian Football Association (HFV) agreed after a meeting on Saturday to submit a corresponding application.
       
  • Escalation levels: Within the framework of the Hessian escalation level concept, districts can react to their local situation in the event of rising incidences. Possible steps then include nightly curfews from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.; school closures, but as before, only with the state's approval; an urgent recommendation to daycare parents to care for children at home.

We made it together through the first year of the pandemic and together we can weather the new wave that seems ahead of us.  We ask your cooperation to follow the mandated regulations.
