Bavaria: Lauterbach against plans to end the mask requirement

Munich (dpa / lby) - Federal Health Minister Karl Lauterbach (SPD) has criticized the Bavarian considerations to end the mask requirement on buses and trains. He doesn't understand the rush, you're facing a "possibly difficult winter," he said on Bayerischer Rundfunk, referring to around 1,000 corona deaths per week. In the event that what he considers to be a “reckless” decision to abolish the obligation to wear masks in local transport is made at state level, Lauterbach showed no inclination to abolish the obligation to wear masks in long-distance transport in the near future. The Infection Protection Act applies until April, he said.

Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) recently announced that the mask requirement in local transport would end soon. On Monday he said: "We are convinced that the mask requirement in public transport could expire either in mid-December or at the beginning of next year, if the numbers remain reasonably stable and there are no new mutations." The state government will make a decision on this in a timely manner.
