Evening locations only if necessary

Since 13.03.2020 the city of Jena has published information on the corona situation (so-called "evening situations") every evening. This has been done in the form of press releases, via social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and as current news in the town hall portal. Since 16.05.2020 we have been using this format only when necessary. In case of changes in the number of cases or important information for citizens on regulations and ordinances, there will be a notification.

As before, the corona case numbers in the OpenData portal are updated daily.

Evening situation from 28.05.2020

Corona case numbers

As of today there are no more corona cases in Jena known to the public health department. The head of staff Benjamin Koppe and the mayor Dr. Thomas Nitzsche informed about this today. The last person who was ill with COVID-19 was released from quarantine today after a negative test.

Benjamin Koppe sees the course of the past months confirmed:

Our measures of the Jena bundle strategy were correct. After the high number of cases in mid-March, which were mainly caused by people returning from travel, we succeeded in keeping the spread of the virus in the city at a very low level by acting early and applying stricter rules.

Mayor Dr. Thomas Nitzsche thanked the people of Jena for their exemplary behaviour in the last few weeks, but especially at the beginning of the crisis.

The respectful treatment of fellow human beings, the keeping of distance and of course the wearing of the mouth-nose-coverings - largely self-made and much earlier than in the rest of Germany - were important success factors. I am proud of my city.

In the meantime, a lot of normality is possible again - albeit with restrictions: restaurants are open, schools and day-care centres are gradually opening, and starting on 01.06.2020, a visit to the open-air swimming pool is possible again.

It is precisely for this reason that Nitzsche and Koppe warn that discipline must be maintained with regard to the observance of distance and hygiene rules, the wearing of mouth-nose covers in shops and public transport, and the possibility of tracing infection chains.

If more people come to Jena from outside as a result of the relaxation, the virus can be introduced again. Therefore we have to act carefully not to risk a second wave and thus a new lockdown,

so Koppe.

Thuringia's mayors have also underlined these demands in a joint appeal to the state government.

Jena statistics since 14.03.2020
  • 159 reported corona cases, 3 deaths, 156 persons recovered

The last infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus was reported on 12.05.2020.

KiTa fees

In the course of the changeover from emergency care to limited regular operation starting next Monday, many parents are wondering how this will affect the Kita fee. In principle, there is the possibility of an individual agreement between parents and childcare facility. Some institutions already offer this.

For a municipal overall solution, the Kita fee statutes would have to be adapted. This would have an effect on the Kita financing of the provider.

In this context, the city of Jena hopes for a regulation by the state to adjust the fees to the hours of care actually provided and to compensate for the financial losses for the providers.

As long as there are no concrete statements, however, the previous fee collection must be maintained.

Schools, institutions of initial, continuing and further vocational education and training, adult education and other institutions according to § 33 IfSG

Schools will continue to operate in a modified form and in compliance with hygiene regulations. The modified classroom instruction is gradually being expanded to include additional groups of pupils.

From 02.06.2020 at the latest, modified attendance lessons for all

From 02.06.2020 at the latest, all pupils are to be included in the modified classroom instruction. Each school decides how this is to be done in concrete terms on its own responsibility, but in coordination with the city of Jena and taking into account the concept of the Ministry of Education

Continued emergency care

Emergency care for the eligible pupils will continue to be provided within the framework of the personnel and spatial capacities of the schools. The operation of the school will be restricted or suspended if the occurrence of infection makes this necessary.

initial, continuing and further vocational training, adult education and preparatory training

From 25.05.2020, educational institutions and training centres may open up for all measures of vocational education and training, further education and training, adult education and pre-vocational training measures as well as training and integration accompanying measures.

Since 18.05.2020, the day-care facilities have been transferred in various steps to a restricted regular operation. The first step towards restricted regular operation since 18.05. is that all pre-school children and their siblings may return to the facility.

From 02.06. limited regular operation in day-care centres

From 02.06.2020 onwards, the Jena daycare centres will operate on a restricted regular basis. This means that all children can return to the daycare centers. In each day care center, a daily care time of at least 7 hours is guaranteed, for example from 08:00 to 15:00.

Reason for limited opening hours

The reason for the restricted opening hours are mainly due to the regulations issued by the Thuringian Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports (TMBJS) and Thuringian Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs, Health, Women and Family (TMASGFF), which must be observed. These include that the children must be looked after in a fixed group with a fixed educator in a fixed room. Mixing of the children as usual in the morning or in the later afternoon hours is not permitted.

Depending on the day care centre, there will be different forms of these framework conditions, depending on spatial and personnel resources. The top priority is to strictly adhere to the hygiene rules/hygiene concepts.

By entering into restricted regular operation, the previous emergency care for children of parents with system-relevant occupations is no longer applicable.

The entry into restricted regular operation means that the previous emergency care for children of parents with system-relevant occupations is no longer applicable. The previous emergency care can only be provided until 29.05.2020 in the form most recently extended by the state by including pre-school children and their siblings in the previously known manner and during the last usual care periods.

According to the last regulation of the country, the restricted regular service must completely replace the previous emergency care. Privileged treatment of children whose parents work in system-relevant occupations is then no longer permitted under the state's ordinance.

Child day care

The day care centre is open again.

Mouth and nose cover

The city of Jena is gradually introducing the obligation to wear a mouth and nose cover.

  1. With the coming into effect of the general ruling (Thursday, 02.04.) this obligation applies when using or providing services where the distance of 1.5 m does not have to be observed. These are, for example, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy measures or services provided by opticians and hearing aid acousticians.
  2. From 06.04. onwards, the obligation applies when using public transport (incl. taxi), in supermarkets or other sales outlets and when entering craft or service enterprises.
  3. The last step is valid from 10.04. resp. 14.04. (due to closure of the companies and institutions on Good Friday then from Tuesday after Easter). Then the wearing of a mouth-nose cover is also obligatory at the workplace if more than one person is working in a room. An exception is made if it is ensured that 20 sqm per person are available in a room and a distance of 1.5 m is guaranteed. The obligation to wear a mouth-nose cover also applies to public rooms in which the distance of 1.5 m cannot be maintained.
  4. From 17.04. the obligation applies when entering covered traffic areas of shopping centres (e.g. Goethe Galerie, Neue Mitte, Burgaupark) and at the weekly markets.
  5. From 26.04. the obligation applies to participation in church services and other religious meetings in closed rooms,
    when entering open facilities in the sense of § 5 of the 3rd Thür-SARS-CoV-2-EindmaßnVO (e.g. museums, galleries and exhibitions and similar offers) in closed rooms

In addition to the self-sewn mouth-nose cover, scarves, shawls, buffs and fabric cuttings made of bed sheets or other densely woven cotton fabrics (washable at 90° C) is possible.

Since a medical mask ("OP mask") is not mandatory, we ask you not to wear it. They are urgently needed by medical or nursing staff. The same applies to filtering half masks (FFP2 and FFP3).

We urgently advise against the FFP2 masks with valve, as these only filter the inhaled air and are therefore not designed for external protection!

Children are exempt from the obligation to wear a mouth-nose cover until they enter school.

Through a Mouth and nose cover droplets that are emitted when speaking, coughing or sneezing are intercepted. The risk of infecting another person by coughing or sneezing is reduced. The wearing of aMouth and nose cover is therefore primarily foreign protection.

Of course, a simple, fabric-stitched Mouth and nose cover not for the care of corona-positive patients. A mouth and nose protector is required here.

But: Every covering has more protective effect for wearer and opposite than none!

By wearing the cover, we protect above all those who are now maintaining public life in the city. These include public transport drivers, supermarket or drugstore employees, doctors, nurses and carers.

And, of course, we all have a special responsibility, especially towards the risk groups: for example, the elderly and people with pre-existing conditions.

Not every infected person notices that they are sick. Wearing a cover can prevent undetected infected people from infecting others.

Public spaces and weekly markets

All persons entering public spaces and weekly markets where the safety distance cannot be maintained (supermarkets, food outlets, offices of craftsmen and service providers, public transport, banks, etc.) must have a Mouth and nose cover wear.

Where space can be tight - e.g. in shops, shopping centres, stalls at weekly markets

Mouth and nose covers do not have to be worn immediately when leaving the house, but when entering non-private, rooms and weekly markets. That is, in rooms or areas where it may happen that the distances cannot be maintained.

Then it is mainly about your shopping, so a time of about 1-2 hours to reduce the risk of transmission.

church services, religious meetings

When attending church services and other religious gatherings in closed rooms, mouth and nose covers must be worn.

museums, galleries and exhibitions in closed rooms

  • when entering open facilities within the meaning of § 5 of the 3rd Thür-SARS-CoV-2-EindmaßnVO (e.g. museums, galleries and exhibitions and similar offerings) in closed rooms

School

  • in classroom lessons, but also breaks and moving (e.g. changing rooms) within the school building (compulsory from 04.05.)
Exceptions
  • Excluded from this obligation is the stay outside, especially breaks in the schoolyard (in this case appropriate measures must be taken to ensure that the minimum distance is observed),
  • Excluded are also test situations (here, special attention must be paid to a strict hygiene and ventilation regime and distances beyond the minimum distance of 1.5 m must be ensured).

Please wash before touching and applying the Mouth and nose cover thoroughly and disinfect your hands if possible. The cover must fit tightly in front of your nose and mouth.

Also, you should not touch them while they are being worn.

As an alternative to a mask, you can, for example, also cut two-ply tea towels, bed sheets or other cloths from densely woven cotton in such a way that they can be tied in front of your mouth and nose.

Also the use of scarves or buffs made of cotton fabrics is possible.

Since a medical mask ("surgical mask") is not prescribed, we ask you not to wear it. These are urgently required by medical or nursing staff. The same applies to filtering half masks (FFP2 and FFP3).

We strongly advise against the FFP2 masks with valve, as these only filter the air you breathe in and are therefore not designed for protection against foreign bodies!

If you are looking for a suitable fabric for your mouth-nose cover, please check our Jena fabric shops first and thereby support the people here locally.

It is also important to change and wash the self-sewn Mouth and nose covers they must be changed and washed regularly, especially when they are soaked.

The self-sewn Mouth and nose covers can be used several times by washing them as a boil wash (at 90° C or 95° C) and then ironing them. This procedure destroys the germs.

The coverings must be washed daily! Cleaning can also be done by boiling them in a pot on the stove.

Yes!

Covers are a supplement to the measures. They do not replace the minimum distance of 1.5 meters. Also the further hygiene measures may not be neglected.

The wearing of a Mouth and nose cover can lead to a false sense of security. As a result, the wearer runs the risk of forgetting important hygiene measures such as washing hands.

It is extremely important to change the covering regularly (change it immediately if it is soaked through, but at least once a day) and to wash and iron at high temperatures after each use.

The agency ART-KON-TOR developed a campaign for the obligation of the mouth and nose covering.

Disease, symptoms, incubation period

The disease COVID-19 caused by SARS-CoV-2 is accompanied by symptoms such as coughing, sniffles, neck scratches and fever. Some sufferers also suffer from diarrhea. In some patients, the virus seems to be associated with a more severe course, leading to respiratory problems and pneumonia.

The novel coronavirus is transmissible from person to person. It can be assumed that the transmission - as with other coronaviruses - occurs primarily via secretions of the respiratory tract. The novel coronaviruses were also found in stool samples taken from some affected individuals.

Currently, it is assumed that the incubation period is 2 to 10 days.

Based on risk assessments, information and, if necessary, measures are adjusted daily. This is done on the basis of reports from the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) of the European Union and the World Health Organization (WHO).

Risk assessment of the RKI for Germany

The Robert Koch Institute continuously records the current situation, evaluates all information and assesses the risk for the population in Germany. The current risk assessment of the RKI for Germany can be found here.

Protection against infectious diseases

Currently there is a much higher risk of getting infected with the seasonal flu! For this flu season the annually adjusted vaccine is available. Get vaccinated against flu!

Regardless of the appearance of the new coronavirus, the most important hygiene measures for your personal protection and the protection of the population are regular and thorough hand washing with soap and water, as well as adherence to the coughing and sneezing label!

Please also talk to your children about these measures.

Options for contact reduction measures

Whether in the private sector, in the organisation of major events, in companies and businesses, or in the medical sector, there are ways to reduce contact.
