Update from November 24th, 8:10 a.m.:

Now it is clear: Prime Minister Markus


(CSU) has


out in favor of the

early Christmas holidays

at schools.

The CSU boss announced this via Twitter

one day before the

Prime Minister's Conference

in Berlin.

He previously confirmed this to Bavarian Broadcasting.

Accordingly, this would make sense, since December 18 would be the last day of school and children would have the opportunity to have a significantly reduced

risk of infection


the week leading up to the festival


Bavaria prefers the start of the Christmas holidays due to Corona.

The last day of school is December 18th.

The risk of infection is significantly reduced by the almost one-week waiting period between school lessons and Christmas, so that families can celebrate in a healthy and carefree way.

Incidentally, the state bears the full costs - from renting the hall to the vaccination dose.

The first locations for the planned vaccination centers are already in place: In the Ebersberg district, vaccinations are to take place in an old savings bank hall, in Nuremberg in the Nuremberg Exhibition Center and in Bamberg in the foyer of the Brose Arena.

In addition, there should be a

mobile unit

These vaccination vehicles are supposed to drive to elderly and care facilities.

If desired, those who are no longer mobile themselves can also be vaccinated.

The rest of the population can then be vaccinated free of charge.

, the Bavarian towns and cities, however, must take care of its own.

Many of them advertise the vaccination center as a specific service so that an external service provider can offer the entire vaccination process.

In addition, according to the Association of Statutory Health Insurance



there is a

willingness of doctors

who want to work supportively in the vaccination centers.

The tests of children, parents and supervisors of daycare facilities ran

partial lockdown


Around 1,000 carers and preschoolers from the Würzburg region are regularly tested for infection.

The aim of the investigation is to enable childcare despite corona outbreaks - without daycare centers having to close.

Update from November 22nd, 10:15 p.m.:

Söder is already in favor of extending the lockdown.

Since Sunday evening, however, an eight-page SPD draft for a

joint position paper of the states has been

The draft for the country round shows that

Uprising in the Söder government against the current regulation

Update from November 21, 5:19 p.m .:

The Free Voters warned of an "

endless lockdown

" and called for a scientific review of the infection protection measures to combat corona.

Instead of “endlessly extending the partial lockdown beyond November 30th without perspective based on the 50s incidence”, there should soon be an “

Bavaria: Corona violations at group meetings

Update from November 21, 12:23 p.m.: There

were ten of them celebrating and they came from five households - in the middle of the

Corona lockdown


A big birthday now has consequences for a family from the Kronach district - it will be expensive. *

It wasn't the only incident on Friday yesterday.

The police were called to several parties and gatherings "at which the applicable

Corona / Bavaria: Travel agency wants to support the health department - and receives rejection

Update from November 21, 7.43 a.m.:

A travel agency wants to help the health department to identify contact persons - and receives a rebuff.

Because the Bavarian Ministry of Health currently sees no need for external help with

contact tracking


"We currently have enough government employees," said a spokeswoman for the ministry.

Therefore, the question of the

support of the health authorities

by service providers has not yet arisen.

The Oberallgäu district office had previously


the offer from a

Kempten travel agency


“On the one hand, the employees need a task,” said travel agency managing director Rolf Apin, justifying the proposal.

"On the other hand, we can create a double

relief for the state

through our work and short-time working allowance


However, when following up contacts, confidential

patient and personal data is

collected, emphasized a ministry spokesman.

In addition, the offices imposed and monitored

quarantine measures

, with which they appear in a sovereign function for the Free State.

These tasks should rather be done by their own staff.

According to the ministry, around 700 new employees have been hired, and up to 500 more are to follow.

The applicant situation was "mostly

very good," said a spokesman.

2000 people from the state administration, police and armed forces are also working in Bavaria to track down contacts.

Corona: Travel agency wants to help with contact tracking - "Not so much understanding for the cancellation"

But they would be missing elsewhere, says travel agency manager Apin.

"We therefore do not have that much understanding for the


." With all the problems mentioned by the authorities, he ultimately considers the decision to be "a question of will".

A spokesman for the

Oberallgäu district office

stressed, however, that the authority should not even decide on such a cooperation itself.

New employees for contact follow-up would be hired under employment contracts with the government of Swabia. 

“The employees of the company could apply for it as normal,” emphasized the spokesman.

But because they


short-time work

benefits, they are only allowed to earn up to the amount of their previous net earnings.

With such a low hourly rate, the effort for training would be too great.

Elsewhere, however, the help of a travel agency is welcome: The Coesfeld district in North Rhine-Westphalia has been cooperating with a company since the beginning of November.

Up to ten employees help the health department with telephone support for

corona infected people.

The travel agency employees use their own premises, as a spokesman for the district office said.

"That helps the health department so as not to burden their own infrastructure for intensive contact follow-up."

Corona numbers remain high: Söder makes it clear - "No reason to give the all-clear" - the economy is sounding the alarm

"If the partial lockdown is extended, almost two-thirds of all companies expect some significant losses in sales by the end of the year." This particularly affects sectors such as gastronomy and the hotel industry, but also the retail sector with its Christmas business.

Ilse Aigner (CSU).

These are not legislative resolutions, "but they spark a political binding effect".

"In this way, the parliament virtually votes on the course of the state government and provides the measures with additional parliamentary legitimation."
