Things are progressing in the Free State: In Munich, the incidence is falling further – from today the Corona emergency brake will be removed there and there will be easing. The news ticker for Bavaria.

Update from May 11, 8 p.m.: So that children do not have to undergo a tiresome corona test twice a day, the Bavarian Parents’ Association (BEV) is now demanding that the test result from school may also be used outside of school.

For the foreseeable future, visiting such facilities is only possible with a negative rapid test, as is attending school.

In the opinion of the association, it is therefore superfluous to be tested again for leisure activities if you have already carried out a corona test for school on the same day. In a statement by the BEV it is said: “It is an ethical imperative of the highest priority to increase the opportunities for participation of children and young people to the maximum possible after they have had to wait a long time in the pandemic that is gradually waning.”

As the spokesman assured, it was an oversight. The application has since been submitted. According to the spokesman, the outdoor catering was still allowed to open. Expect quick approval. Weiden had an incidence below 100 for the 14th consecutive day on Monday.
