There are still school holidays in Hamburg - so the children do not have to wear a mask in class.

The FDP member of parliament Anna von Treuenfels-Frowein wants it to stay that way even after the end of the holiday and is attacking the Senate.

Hamburg - Like the CDU parliamentary group in the Hamburg parliament, the FDP MP Anna von Treuenfels-Frowein is calling for an end to the mask requirement in Hamburg's schools. "Half of the republic and large parts of foreign countries" abolished the mask requirement in schools, "because the infection process allows it," she told the German press agency. "Only Hamburg stubbornly sticks to this serious encroachment on fundamental rights against schoolchildren."

In its answer to your written small question, the red-green Senate referred to infection protection and the recommendations of the Federal Ministry of Health and the Robert Koch Institute (RKI): October 2021 took a clear position and continued to demand that the mask be worn in schools, ”it said.

In addition, experience has shown that the risk of infection is higher in the first 14 days after vacation.

The measures would also be continuously checked on the basis of the current infection situation and, if necessary, adjusted.

Von Treuenfels was unimpressed.

"That is irresponsible, makes the lessons unreasonable and does not get any better even with vague hints from the school senator that the mask requirement in elementary schools may be dropped in November," she said.

"Rabe is responsible for the resulting long-term learning deficits."

Great demand for the promotion of e-taxis

Senate and industry representatives see themselves on the right track with the electrification of Hamburg's taxi fleet.

Within the past five months, the number of e-taxis on Hamburg's streets has increased tenfold from 5 to 50, said Transport Senator Anjes Tjarks (Greens) on Tuesday.

As part of the “Zukunftstaxi” project, the city has been funding the purchase of 130 e-taxis with up to 10 e-taxis since April.

The biggest construction sites in the schools

School operations have suffered from Corona.

There is a lot of discussion about the consequences for children and young people.

In the long term, however, there are other problems in Germany's schools that urgently need to be resolved, say education experts ahead of the general election.

The biggest construction sites in the schools

Senator Ties Rabe (SPD) had said in an interview with the “Hamburger Abendblatt” (Wednesday) that “he could imagine a relaxation of the mask requirement for primary school students in November”, “if the number of infections continues to develop positively”.

For the time being, however, the previous rules should remain in place, after which a mask is required in all classrooms.

In an application for citizenship, the CDU is also campaigning for an end to the mask requirement in all schools - but only from November and if the corona infection numbers are still at a comparatively low level two weeks after the end of the autumn vacation.

Classes will start again for Hamburg's students next Monday.
