According to Federal Minister of Health Karl Lauterbach (SPD), the corona protection rules for autumn should not provide for school closures. “There will no longer be the possibility of school closures,” the SPD politician told the ARD capital studio on Friday.

In general, however, “many further measures” are also planned for different scenarios, which the federal states and sometimes also the federal government could use. Lauterbach said he was negotiating with Justice Minister Marco Buschmann (FDP) about a “very good package” that should be presented soon.

This is about follow-up regulations for the Corona provisions in the Infection Protection Act, which expire on September 23. They are the legal basis for measures in the federal states and name possible instruments. By spring, the provisions had been greatly reduced. This eliminated general mask requirements for events or when shopping, as did access rules such as 2G or 3G.
