Question Answer
What are the rules for day care centres? Daycare facilities for children in Hesse are in regular operation.
What rules apply to primary schools? In Hesse it is just autumn holidays. In the primary schools, it was planned that the school management could order the wearing of a mouth-and-nose cover in the school building outside of classroom instruction in the class or course group. In music lessons, joint singing and making music with wind instruments is only permitted outdoors. Every teacher can probably be tested for a possible corona infection before the start of the new school year. Municipalities can order compulsory masking in lessons if the number of cases increases.
What rules apply to secondary schools? Normal attendance classes with compulsory schooling are again in force at all schools. From grade 5 on, the wearing of a mouth-nose cover is obligatory. The mask can be taken off during the breaks, schools have to organise "mask breaks". The rooms should be aired every 20 minutes. From a regional incidence of more than 200, there should be additional regulations for better compliance with the AHA rules, e.g. hybrid or alternating lessons, starting in grade 8. Graduation classes are excluded from this.
What rules apply to educational institutions? Teaching has resumed at the schools for adults.
What rules apply to universities & universities of applied sciences? In the winter semester 2020/2021, lectures at universities and universities of applied sciences are to begin uniformly on November 1, 2020. Further information on attendance seminars and digital lectures is available from your university/college.
What are the rules for visiting the doctor? Medical interventions and operations in clinics and outpatient practices that were previously postponed may be performed again.
What rules apply in contact with people? As of 01.12. only meetings of two households with a limitation of 5 persons in their own apartment are allowed. Children and teenagers under 14 years of age are excluded from these regulations. From an incidence of 200, the corona hotspot value is reached, then the corona rules in this region must be significantly tightened. All citizens are required to reduce their contact with other people (outside their own household) to an absolutely necessary minimum. Private travel and visits to relatives should be avoided. Tourist day trips should also be avoided. AHA+AL rules (distance, hygiene measures, everyday masks, CoronaWarnApp, ventilation) must be observed. If the hygiene rules cannot be observed in public, e.g. on public transport, everyday masks must be worn. A special regulation is planned for Christmas and New Year's Eve (23.12.2020 - 01.01.2021), then again up to 10 persons (children up to 14 years are excluded) from different households should be allowed to meet.
What rules apply to sporting activities? Training in the open air and indoor training should be possible again. Fitness studios and leisure parks are open. Swimming pools, saunas and bathing lakes may open again.
What rules apply to cultural events? Cultural and leisure facilities will remain closed, including theatres and concert halls, cinemas, amusement parks, swimming and fun pools. When the infection situation eases, the federal states should be allowed to reopen them. Playgrounds are open, hygiene and distance rules must be observed. Wholesale and retail trade will remain open under increased hygiene requirements.
What rules apply to hotel and restaurant visits? Restaurants and bars are open, the minimum distance must be observed. Hotels, holiday apartments and camping sites may also accommodate guests. No guests from an inner-German corona hotspot may be accommodated unless they have a negative corona test (not older than 48 hours).
What rules apply to major events? Major cultural events are not permitted. Celebrations on private premises or in public are not permitted after 2 November, as contact restrictions must be observed.
What rules apply to local and long-distance transport? Wearing an everyday mask is mandatory on public transport. This is consistently monitored by the regulatory authorities and sanctioned if necessary.

If children are ill at the Kita/School, they must be picked up by their parents. In case of fever, dry cough and impaired sense of taste, the school/kita may not be entered. However, a cold without further signs of illness is no reason to stay at home.
