Handling SARS-CoV-2

February 01, 2023

On 2 February 2023, the SARS-CoV-2 Occupational Health and Safety Regulation will expire, meaning that the corona rules at the workplace will no longer apply.
According to the Corona Ordinance of the state of Baden-Württemberg, the mask requirement in public transportation will be lifted on January 31, 2023. However, in medical areas, e.g., doctors' offices, hospitals, nursing homes and pharmacies the FFP2 mask requirement will remain.
