FFP2 masks with CE certification lie packed on a table.

The medical surgical masks were no longer sufficient, she affirmed a decision of the red-red-green senate on Saturday evening. According to this, Berlin wants to maintain cautious relaxations and at the same time also tighten the rules on testing. Companies will be obliged to provide home offices for some of their employees. Criticism of the tightened mask obligation has already been voiced in the social media - for example, because of higher acquisition costs for FFP2 masks or already purchased stocks of surgical masks.
