Several federal states have said they plan to reopen schools in phases after February 22nd. Saxony wants to put schoolchildren at their desks from 15 February. The Hamburg authorities are pursuing a different strategy and say they do not plan to reopen schools, even elementary ones, until March.
Holidays in Hamburg will end on March 12. By this time, a decision will be made on how to proceed, said the Mayor of Hamburg Peter Chencher. “We must be extremely careful,” the politician said, referring to the mutated strains of the coronavirus. In his opinion, the number of new infections is currently not decreasing quickly enough, and the modified viruses are so aggressive that they can quickly lead to the situation again getting out of control.
