Rules and recommendations

Funerals are allowed to take place without needing to meet any further conditions.

The general obligation to let a respirator put on during the entire stay indoors does not apply anymore. We, however, still recommend to do so as part of preventative measures, the same applies for keeping a safe distance (even when sitting).

Regardless whether the wake should be held in a restaurant or at home, please do follow the general hygienic regulations, even while consuming refreshments. Even in case of a wake held in a restaurant, you are not obligated to let your respirator put on anymore.

Funeral services are allowed to operate.
