COVID – 19 RESTRICTIONS UPDATE

We are working hard to keep up with the German government’s Covid restrictions, and posting them regularly here for easy access.

Curfew in Frankfurt as of Saturday, 24 April

As part of the coronavirus emergency brake, a curfew from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. will apply in Frankfurt until further notice. 

Exceptions:

  • Averting a danger to life, limb or property, in particular a medical or veterinary emergency or other medically urgent treatment,
  • exercise of a profession within the meaning of Article 12(1) of the Basic Law, insofar as this is not separately restricted, exercise of service or mandate, reporting by representatives of the press, radio, film and other media,
  • exercise of custody or visiting rights,
  • care of minors or persons in need of support that cannot be postponed, or the accompaniment of a dying person,
  • care of animals,
  • purposes of similar importance which cannot be postponed,
  • outdoor sport exercises carried out alone between 10 p.m. and midnight, but not in sports facilities.

Contact restrictions in Frankfurt:

Public life is largely restricted in Frankfurt at the moment. Citizens are urged to reduce contacts with other people outside the members of their own household to an absolutely necessary minimum. Since 8 March, a maximum of five people from two households can meet (children up to the age of 14 are not counted). 

Where do I have to wear a mask in Frankfurt?

From 8 am until 10 pm, you must wear a mask in central Frankfurt and on all shopping streets. For a city map showing the areas and streets where wearing a mask is obligatory, click here.

In general, the use of medical masks is also advised in situations where there is closer or prolonged contact with other people.

From now on, wearing FFP2 masks (or comparable) as mouth-nose protection is compulsory on public transport in Frankfurt. A surgical mask is no longer sufficient. This regulation applies on buses and trains as well as in stations and at stops.

Most important measures: Keep distance, reduce contacts and wear a mask.
