Nuremberg (dpa / Lby) – In view of the current developments in the crown, Bavarian Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) calls his cabinet today for a video conference. Söder will lead the change from the Home Office in Nuremberg.
Söder and his ministers are keen to give advice on the current state of the crown, particularly the increase in numbers nationwide, including those of returning travelers. In addition, the corona outbreak in Mamming, Lower Bavaria, will likely keep ministers busy. The situation in the new test centers should be discussed as well as the question of a possible extension of corona risk areas.
And finally, the cabinet also wants to give advice on how to continue in schools after the summer holidays. Education Minister Michael Piazolo (Free Voters) recently presented a four-step plan, according to which a mask requirement should apply in the classroom instead, even in elementary schools. If there is a high number of infections, there should also be a classroom mask requirement.
It is, however, doubtful that a general mask requirement also threatens in the classroom – North Rhine-Westphalia has decided so for secondary schools. Parents, teachers and student associations in Bavaria are divided over the issue of a general requirement for a mask in the classroom, with many speaking out rather skeptically over the weekend.
