Trouble about the mask duty in NRW schools: imposition

North Rhine-Westphalia will be a mask compulsory in schools - in the classroom. Thus, the most populous state in this area is now the most stringent rules. Education Minister Yvonne Gebauer (FDP) founded the tightening of the Corona-protection measures on Monday in Düsseldorf, with rising infection numbers. From student and teacher organisations, there was criticism: "An imposition".

In all secondary and vocational schools, a mouth-nose protection not only in the school building and on the grounds of duty, but also in the classroom. This is basically new, because so far, only a Mask rule applied in NRW about to break stations and in the corridors.

exceptions are occasionally possible for tests, or certain lessons, as well as for medical reasons, the Minister stated. But 1.5 metres would be the distance ensured. Where this is not possible, apply the mask also compulsory for teachers in the classroom.

it's Different in primary schools: Here the nose and mouth must be covered when in the school building or on the premises on the move - but not if the students sit on their fixed places in the classroom. The Mask requirement applies first of all to 31. August. Peter Kneffel/dpa
