Important information

Due to the high number of new infections we are facing at the moment, it can currently take up to three days for the health department to contact persons who have had contact to people, tested positive. The health department therefore asks for your assistance: If you know that you have had contact with a person who has tested positive (at least 15 minutes, less than 1.5 m away and without face-mask), please quarantine yourself immediately. The same applies if your Corona warning app indicates you are at high risk from contact with a person who has tested positive. If you yourself have received a positive test result, we ask you to inform all contact persons as soon as possible even before the public health department could contact them.

The Thuringian Ministry of Health declares: "From an incidence value of more than 200 per 100,000 inhabitants per week in the county or the independent city in which the respective inpatient care facility or the special living arrangement for people with disabilities is located, only one fixed registered visitor is permitted per resident each day. The visiting person may not change." This also applies to Weimar and the relatives of people who are housed in care facilities, since Weimar has already exceeded the incidence level of 200 for several days and there is no foreseeable improvement in the short term.
