13.3: Administrative staff of the state capital Mainz decides on further measures to protect against coronavirus infections

Schools and childcare facilities will remain closed until 19 April 2020. Events with more than 75 people present are prohibited.

The administrative staff of the state capital Mainz met today with the head of the responsible health authority Mainz-Bingen and decided on further measures to protect against coronavirus infections. They will apply from Monday 16 March 2020 until 19 April 2020 inclusive (end of the Rhineland-Palatinate Easter holidays):

    All schools, daycare centres and after-school care centres will be closed. Affected parents are asked to organise child care themselves, for example through relatives or friends. Emergency care will be set up for parents who work in professions that are critical for the care of the population (e.g. medical staff, fire brigade) and who cannot organise alternative care.
    Events with more than 75 people present will be prohibited.
    The Mainz weekly market, which serves the population for the supply of fresh food, will take place as usual on Tuesdays and Fridays. The weekly market on Saturday will be spatially equalized and will also take place on Liebfrauenplatz.
    All municipal administrative buildings will be closed to the public. In urgent cases, e.g. when appointments cannot be postponed, it is possible to make an appointment by telephone.
    City events and committee meetings that are not absolutely necessary will be cancelled. Appropriate information will be announced in good time.
    The Peter Cornelius Conservatory will be closed.
    Funeral ceremonies in the funeral halls of city cemeteries are limited to a maximum of 30 people.
    The youth centres will remain closed and all events planned there will be cancelled.
    The Gutenberg Marathon is cancelled.
    The Dirt Way Day will be cancelled.
    Already from Saturday, 14 March 2020, all public sports facilities will be closed. The Taubertsbergbad will also be closed.

The top priority is to slow down the spread of the virus. All federal, state and local measures are aimed at this. An overtaxing of the health system must be prevented.

The administrative staff of the state capital Mainz will continuously monitor further developments in the spread of coronavirus infections and adapt the measures adopted accordingly. The administrative staff will meet at close intervals for this purpose.
