Bans on entry in the event of symptoms of illness instead of federal states as risk areas

The city of Jena is withdrawing the regulation to designate individual federal states as risk areas. Persons who are in domestic quarantine due to this regulation are released from this regulation as of Thursday, but must report any signs of symptoms to the hotline 0049 3641 49-3333. Due to the further spread of the disease in Germany, Jena has decided to shift the focus of preventive measures. In the future, the city will impose far-reaching bans on entry in the case of typical corona symptoms (instead of quarantine when returning from another federal state) and the obligation to wear a mouth and nose protector.

City does not accept orders for mouth and nose covers

We ask you to refrain from sending e-mails and calling the city administration to order mouth-and-nose covers. There are already numerous initiatives, especially in the social media, that produce and distribute large quantities of mouth-nose covers. Please also think of those who may not have access to social media.
