Effective immediately, new regulations for quarantine at schools

With immediate effect, the Federal City of Bonn implements the new regulation of quarantine at schools provided by the state.

Accordingly, the quarantine of students is limited in principle to the demonstrably infected person. Individual contact persons or entire course or class groups will only have to be quarantined at home in very special and narrowly defined exceptional cases.

"I welcome the new regulation of quarantine in schools. Based on previous experience, it is well justifiable and the right step to ensure as much normality in everyday school life as possible for the children," says Mayor Katja Dörner.

The prerequisites for these rules are compliance with hygiene measures such as the AHA+L rules (keep your distance, observe hygiene, wear a mask in everyday life, ventilate regularly) and regular tests. "In addition, it is important that in cases where exceptions exist in the school, especially from the obligation to wear a mask (for example, in physical education classes), these exceptions are clearly documented and the other rules (e.g., spacing) are observed as far as possible," according to the NRW School Ministry.

Free testing possible from the fifth day

If, as an exception, a quarantine of contact persons is ordered, it must be limited to as few students as possible. In this case, the quarantine can be ended prematurely by a negative PCR test. The PCR test is performed by a physician or in PCR testing centers.

The test may be performed no earlier than after the fifth day of quarantine. If the test result is negative, students* will immediately return to class. This rule does not apply to teachers and other school personnel. Students who are currently in quarantine will not be able to take a PCR test until at least five days have elapsed.
