Emergency ordinance 15 July 2020
The emergency ordinance that took effect on 1 July 2020 has been clarified on a number of points.
The emergency ordinance provides legal powers to act if necessary. Enforcement and the police will only issue fines if previous warnings are unsuccessful and there is no other option. The most important basic rules still apply: keep 1.5 metres away, avoid crowds, wash your hands regularly, stay at home if you have complaints, work at home if possible and avoid rush hour as much as possible. Only if we all stick to the rules does the corona virus not get another chance, and the city and region will continue to open up. The emergency ordinance of 1 July 2020 remains in force. Points were amended in the emergency ordinance of 15 July 2020.
