As lockdown eases, Germany mandates wearing masks in public places

As part of the government’s efforts to contain the spread of novel Coronavirus or COVID-19, new rules mandating people to wear masks in some public places were pushed into force across most of Germany on Monday, April 27.

While the exact rules and enforcement are different in different states, in most of the country’s 16 states, masks have been mandated to be worn while shopping and riding public transportation.

The measures come with a gradual lifting of restrictions that began last week with shops smaller than 800 square meters been allowed to reopen as the country had a steady decline in the number of new Coronavirus cases over the past few weeks.

Public meetings are still limited to a maximum of two people given that everyone belongs to the same family or household.
