Now they're shouting at each other, ”notes one user. Another is very clear: “Just go for a walk, not entertain. Advertisement is out. ”In fact, he's right - even chatting with two or three meters is prohibited. How the three try to keep the rules , but still warms some hearts.

12.28 p.m .: The Department for Health and the Environment (RGU) once again assured in today's town hall survey that people who tested positive for Corona would be informed as soon as possible.

And this is the procedure : The RGU receives reports of corona cases tested positive from the testing laboratories. The department then contacts the infected person, arranges for quarantine , ascertains the state of health and provides the necessary information.
However, negative test results for people who have had a test carried out by their general practitioner or by the Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians in Bavaria (KVB) will not be given to the RGU. Negative test results are therefore only communicated through the family doctor or the KVB. All citizens are again explicitly asked to take this into account.
Coronavirus in Munich: Police with appeal: "Still stay home ..."
10.11 a.m .: The coming weekend promises plenty of sunshine in the Isar metropolis. This has prompted the Munich police to make an important announcement . "Please stay at home anyway and only leave the apartment for good reason," said a spokesman on Friday morning.
On trips to the hotspots of the city and those of the surrounding area, it was not to be expected that the specified minimum distance of 1.5 meters could be maintained. So far, one is extremely satisfied with the behavior of the population, said the spokesman. This tendency would be reduced to absurdity if everyone ran to the Isar in fine weather.
A nice weekend is just around the corner and you want to get some fresh air? Are you looking for seclusion in the mountains and on the lake? The problem: quite a few others too.
We therefore urge you to avoid long distances! #BleibtsDahoam pic.twitter.com/UKl5Vbx4fs
Coronavirus in Munich: Citizens should avoid unnecessary trips
Bavaria's Minister of the Interior Joachim Herrmann (CSU) also called on the citizens in the coronavirus crisis to refrain from trips to the mountains at the weekend. “It is not the point if people think that they have to drive into the mountains in excess of 50 or 100 kilometers. I strongly advise against it, ”said Herrmann on Friday in the Bavarian radio (Bayern 2“ radioWelt am Morgen ”).
Even if the weather was fine on Saturday, it should not be used as an occasion for such trips, the Minister warned. For counties like Miesbach and Garmisch-Partenkirchen, day trippers are a burden, among other things for the mountain rescue service. "It is a burden when you have to save someone who bends their feet in such a situation," said Herrmann.
Joachim Herrmann warns the Bavarian population to be reasonable.
