Education, culture and sports

To prevent spreading of the coronavirus, we need to avoid contact with each other. Due to the aforementioned, restrictions for public gatherings have been established. For the time being, all educational institutions (excl. kindergartens), cultural institutions and sports facilities have been closed.

In order to obtain everything foreseen by the curriculum without having to leave home, educational institutions have established remote ways of learning. It is of upmost importance that students also avoid meeting each other physically after the school day has ended.

Instead of visiting cultural institutions, leisure time can be spent outdoors, where spreading of the virus is limited. What we still always have to keep at the back of our minds is to practice social distancing, even while being outdoors.
