Current Mask Requirements in Munich

12 posts in this topic

Coming back to Germany soon and trying to pin down when/where masks are required.  I know I have to wear one on the plane, but what about in stores, restaurants, public transportation, etc.?

 

Also, where masks are required, what type of masks are required?

 

Thanks in advance for any info you can provide!

just put one in your pocket and wear if needed. But, yes to public transport and maybe hospitals, no to stores, restaurants, etc. 

 

I believe the rules are going to change again Oct 1st.

Stores etc can refuse service if you are not wearing one.  Many have a sign saying it is voluntary, but please wear one.  Some Apotheke  (for obvious reasons) demand it.   So I always have one on me.  Not least because I needed one recently and the shop selling them only had packs of 50.

Yes, to the above and make sure its FFP2 standard.

 

I am a forgetful person, so I carry one in my Rucksack, in the car and try to have one in my coat also my jeans. This means I normally have access to one. They do not cost much so just bring a pack of 5

I keep one of each type in my backpack, but on public trans down here wearing a surgical mask is just fine.

Best to have a spare one in your pocket, they are quite flimsy. I wash mine and use them again, or are you supposed to throw them away?

 

Be wary of the rules, apparently you are not allowed to remove your mask to eat or drink while on a train/bus or at a station.

 

But why do bus drivers not wear them?

Company benefits. They can go freestyle.

Bus drivers could be superspreaders, passengers have to go by them showing their tickets.

 

I think they should be separated by a screen to avoid possible virus transfer.

Be afraid.  Be very afraid.  :ph34r:
