The federal government is planning a “multi-stage, situation-related protection concept” for the fall regarding Corona. For this purpose, the Federal Ministry of Health and the Federal Ministry of Justice have developed a further development of the Infection Protection Act, according to information from the news broadcaster nv from a communication from both departments. In August, the cabinet wants to pass an amendment to the Infection Protection Act.
Between October and April, “certain area-specific protective measures should apply nationwide”. In addition, however, one apparently wants to give more powers to the federal states. These could order further restrictions “to the extent necessary to ensure the functionality of the health system or other critical infrastructure and to maintain regulated school lessons in attendance”. The state measures would have to be decided by the state parliaments and could then be tightened up if necessary, it said.
