Saxony: Köpping for the end of the mask requirement on buses and trains

Dresden (dpa / sn) - Saxony's Social Affairs Minister Petra Köpping (SPD) has spoken out in favor of ending the mask requirement on buses and trains in January. "Many corona indicators are currently painting a positive picture. I will therefore propose to the committees that the mask requirement for public transport be converted into an urgent recommendation from mid-January," she said on Wednesday in Dresden. First "Sächsische.de" had reported. According to Köpping, corona protection measures are only permissible in the event of overload: "At the same time, my appeal still applies: Vaccination remains important and you can protect yourself with a mask." Everyone has this in their own hands.

"We feel confirmed in our view by the current statements by (virologist) Christian Drosten that we are on the way to becoming an endemic," said Köpping. It was agreed that the current situation in Saxony would be discussed and reassessed shortly. "It is still important to us to discuss the necessary measures together with the players in the hospitals and the medical profession," emphasized the minister.
