Hamburg Senate is examining exit restrictions

Now the Senate is checking after MOPO information whether an exit restriction can be imposed for Hamburg. If this measure is initiated, it will probably only apply from the weekend.

A test obligation for companies and a readjustment on the subject of schools are also being examined. A school closure should not be planned for the time being. Hairdressers should remain open. Stricter contact restrictions are probably not considered.
