Refugee shelter under quarantine

The municipal community facility for refugees, where a Corona outbreak has currently occurred, is under quarantine.

The city government issued the quarantine on Friday afternoon, April 30, 2021, both verbally and by published general order, which takes effect on Saturday, May 1, 2021. It will be in effect until May 11. Affected are almost 90 people who are not allowed to leave the premises of the shelter. At the same time, a ban on visiting and entering applies. The Office for Social Affairs and Housing will ensure that the people are provided for.

According to the investigations of the health department so far, a resident of the facility had tested positive on Wednesday. The man, who was housed just outside the shelter, did not indicate any close contacts. As part of the twice-weekly in-line testing at the shared housing, about 20 people tested positive on Thursday. Therefore, PCR tests were performed on the residents by mobile teams. The results are still pending. Employees of the shelter are not considered close contacts; they are not under quarantine.

The city administration will provide further information.
