By the way: Mrs. Merkel herself must now stay in quarantine for two weeks, because she might have contracted the coronavirus from a doctor who is infected with it. This doctor had vaccinated Frau Merkel against pneumonia.
The quarantine applies to all students and their teachers at the secondary school at the Oberschule am Schiffshebewerk Scharnebeck until March 27, 2020. This affects all members of the family who live in one household. Anyone who shows symptoms of a cold must report to thecitizens' phone at (0 4131) 26 1000. Please do NOT go to the doctor, hospital or diagnostic center until you have registered with this number and received instructions! The citizen phone can be reached daily from 08:00 to 18:00. Sometimes you have to wait a bit for the call to be accepted. Please stay on the line! If you do not show any cold symptoms, you should not report, because a test does not make sense because the virus cannot be detected at this time. The quarantine regulations must be observed. Information is available at www.landkreis-lueneburg.de/corona.
There is a new website for the people of Lüneburg. There you can find out where you need help and support, e.g. because you cannot or don't want to leave the house due to your age, illness or quarantine and therefore cannot shop. Others offer themselves as conversation partners so that people feel less lonely. Still others help with childcare or go for a walk with the dog if you cannot do it yourself. The website can be reached at www.lebendiges-lueneburg.de/solidaritaet .
All churches are closed. On the websites of the individual churches you can find their offers, e.g. Online worship services and offers of talks.
The mosques on Lüner Weg and Dahlenburger Str. Arealso closed - Friday prayers are canceled until further notice.
The contributions for March have already been paid. As soon as the day-care centers, day-care centers and day-care centers in the city go back to normal, the parents receive a bill for this month and part of the contribution is repaid. From April, the Hanseatic city will stop collecting the fees for care, i.e. the money is not debited. Anyone who pays their fees by standing order should initially suspend it. With this, the city wants to relieve parents in this difficult time. So far, this regulation does not apply to childcare facilities from other providers.
