From DW NEWS:
“From Saturday, passengers over the age of 14 on long-distance trains will be obliged to wear FFP2 masks — similar to the US-standard N95 respirator — rather than the less-protective surgical masks that have hitherto been compulsory.”
Does anyone know if food and drinks will no longer be allowed to be consumed anywhere on these trains due to the removal of these masks?
“Health ministers in all 16 German states have agreed that passengers on local buses and trains will be required to wear at least surgical masks, although that is not mandatory under the new federal rules.”
This really confuses me. Does state or the new federal law mandate mask rules on local public transportation?
