Haseloff: Countries should be able to decide on contact restrictions



Saxony-Anhalt’s Prime Minister Reiner Haseloff (CDU) has spoken out in favor of giving the states the option of contact restrictions in order to contain the corona pandemic.

Magdeburg – Saxony-Anhalt’s Prime Minister Reiner Haseloff (CDU) has spoken out in favor of giving the states the option of contact restrictions in order to contain the corona pandemic. “There must be the possibility that we can act there,” said Haseloff on Tuesday after the cabinet meeting in Magdeburg. According to Haseloff, it is about a legal restriction option for private contacts at hotspots and access restrictions at cultural or sporting events, among other things.

On Thursday, the prime ministers want to discuss a uniform line in corona policy with the executive chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU). Before that, the Bundestag is to adopt legislative plans for the likely government partners SPD, FDP and Greens. In addition to the possibility of restricting contacts and prohibiting leisure events, a 3G regulation is also planned in local public transport and at work.

“We need these instruments and they are now coming back in,” said the Prime Minister, referring to the legislative plans. After the decision of the Bundestag, the state government wants to revise the current containment ordinance this week. (dpa)
