It has been a year and 6 months since the corona virus began in December 2019. Although vaccines have been developed, we are still living with quarantine rules to prevent the spread of the virus. According to the rules updated on April 12th, the outside areas of restaurants, cafés are allowed to be open again. Meetings there, just as private meetings, are possible with a maximum of 5 people of 2 households. Medical/FFP2 masks have to be worn when entering, but can be taken off at the table. The indoor areas have to remain closed except for picking up pre-ordered food or using the bathroom. Alcohol can be sold until 9pm.
