School Senator Ties Rabe: mask duty at schools in Hamburg

At Hamburg's schools is due to the Corona pandemic, with the start of the new school year, a mask of duty. "We have voted at the weekend once again with leading associations, ( ... ), which are now come to the assessment that a mask is mandatory makes sense," said school Senator Ties Rabe (SPD) on Monday the radio station NDR 90.3. Therefore, students, teachers, visitors – a mask of duty applicable at the beginning of the new school year on Thursday for all – as soon as you enter the school grounds. Be excluded only to ten years, "because they are so small that they can't deal with the masks, actually, in a professional manner".

The mask duty applies to the whole of the school grounds, but not for the teaching itself. "At the Moment, where the pupils and students to their workplace spaces to sit in the class or when teachers sit in the teachers' lounge at your workplace, then the mask goes off duty," said Raven. But otherwise, "are wearing the masks, without exception".

Senator Raven stressed, a mask in the classroom, even disturbing more than you use it, "because you have to talk in the classroom, of course, to each other". The communication is the actual Element of learning. "And, it is also important to look the other in the eyes, the facial Expressions, to perceive, to communicate securely." This hinders the mask, however, so much so that they are in the classroom is being waived.
