Last update: 24 March 2020

  • Latest news: The federal and state governments have agreed on an extension of the guidelines on restricting social contacts decided on 12 March. As of Tuesday, 24 March the following applies:

    I. Citizens are urged to reduce contacts with other people other than members of their own household to an absolutely necessary minimum.

    II. In public, wherever possible, a minimum distance of at least 1.5 meters is to be maintained from other persons than members of one\'s own household.

    III. Staying in the puplic space is only allowed individually, with another person not living in the household or in the circle of the members of one\'s own household. Violations of the restrictions on contact will be monitored by the regulatory authorities and the police and sanctions will be imposed in the event of violations.

    IV. The way to work, emergency care, shopping, visits to the doctor, participation in meetings, necessary appointments and examinations, help for other or individual sports and exercise outdoors and other necessary activities remain of course possible.

    V. Groups of people celebrating in public places, in their homes and in private institutions are unacceptable given the seriousness of the situation in our country.

    VI. Restaurants and other gastronomic businesses will be closed. An exception to this is the delivery and collection of take-away food for consumption at home.

    VII. Personal care service providers such as hairdressers, beauty salons, massage parlours, tattoo studios and similar establishments will be closed as physical proximity is essential in this sector. Medically necessary treatments remain possible.

    VIII. In all establishments and especially those open to the public, it is important to comply with hygiene regulations and implement effective protective measures for employees and guests.


    As many of these measures are already being implemented in Rhineland-Palatinate, the following will change:

    The number of contact persons will be further reduced. For this reason, leaving one\'s own home and staying in public space is only permitted alone, with another person not living in the same household or with members of one\'s own household.

    This is to ensure that the risk of infection is reduced. More services are prohibited: e.g. hairdressers, beauty salons, nail salons, tattoo studios. Medical services such as medical pedicure, opticians or hearing aid technicians are not affected.

Please notice:

  • The management unit of the state capital Mainz will continuously monitor further developments in the spread of coronavirus infections and adapt the measures decided accordingly. The management unit will meet at close intervals for this purpose and inform the public afterwards.

  • Employees of the Mainz city administration may also be affected by the effects of the current situation. Therefore longer processing times are possible. We kindly ask for your understanding.

  • The city administration asks to limit visits to the administrative buildings to what is absolutely necessary and to follow hygiene requirements during the visits.
