Germany prepares to ease quarantine

In particular, it is planned to open all stores in the country, regardless of their size, and return children to schools.
The German government has prepared a series of quarantine reliefs, which will be discussed on Wednesday, May 6, with the heads of the federal states, DPA reports.

According to the draft decision, the federal government wants to keep the ban on major public events, including festivals and sports events, at least until the end of August.

Berlin also supports the opening of all stores across the country, regardless of size, based on strict hygiene and social distance rules.

In addition, the Federal Government plans that all schoolchildren across the country return to classes step-by-step for the summer holidays under strict instructions to ensure the safety of children.

The government should approve the return of professional football games in the Bundesliga and the second Bundesliga, which will be preceded by a two-week quarantine measure, possibly a training camp.

The estimated start date for the games, which will be held without spectators, is May 15 or 21, although the exact date remains open.

According to the project, the federal government wants to transfer responsibility for additional relaxation of restrictions to the regional governments of the federal states.

Recall that in late April, Germany banned overseas trips for another six weeks.
Also, experts recently said that the German economy is plunging into a severe recession in connection with the pandemic.
