Information from the Coronavirus Crisis Team

20 June 2022

Even though the coronavirus pandemic is currently receiving less public attention than previously, the Coronavirus Crisis Team would like to ask you to continue to take care and observe the general hygiene measures (cough and sneeze etiquette, regular washing of hands, limiting of contact to other persons if you show signs of illness, as well as self-distancing and the voluntary wearing of surgical or professional (FFP2) face masks inside buildings).

In spite of the summer weather, incidences are once again on the rise, which is mainly down to the new, highly virulent Omicron variant BA.5.

In addition to measures that can be taken by every individual, the coronavirus vaccination continues to provide the best protection against severe courses of illness. The local district still provides you with the opportunity to have yourself vaccinated against the coronavirus or to boost previous vaccinations. Information and vaccination opportunities can be found here [de].

In order to make it possible for the Coronavirus Crisis Team to keep an eye on the number of active infections, we ask you to voluntarily inform the Crisis Team if you have received a positive result from a test for the coronavirus. You can do that here.

The Coronavirus Crisis Team still convenes on a regular basis. The next session will take place on 21 July 2022. If you have any further questions, please contact the Coronavirus Crisis Team

Wishing you a summer of good health and sending you our best regards,
