After the last session, Söder announced numerous new corona relaxations * and introduced the new hospital traffic light for Bavaria.

Corona in Bavaria: Cabinet is dedicated to starting school and the consequences of the pandemic

Today's meeting will probably deal with the question of how pupils who are older than 12 years can be offered vaccinations in the coming weeks and how the risk of infection can be kept as low as possible for younger people.

One will also talk about the consequences of the corona pandemic, according to a message from the Bavarian State Ministry.

At the beginning of the school year, the incidence, i.e. the number of new infections within a week, is no longer primarily decisive for the course of the lessons, but the occupancy of the hospitals.

In younger people, the course of the disease is usually less problematic than in older people.

Nevertheless, there are also risks here, including with regard to possible long-term consequences.

Söder announces an innovation in advance

Bavaria also wants to introduce the so-called lollipop tests at the Bavarian daycare centers.

"We want even more security in the daycare centers," said Prime Minister Söder of the

Augsburger Allgemeine

(Tuesday), "we will therefore enable the lollipop tests at the request of the parents." The municipalities should therefore have the choice of whether they want the lollipop tests with the PCR standard introduce or continue to rely on voluntary self-tests.

"The Free State will take over the costs," explained Söder.
