Overview: At this meeting of the National Security Council, in consultation with the ministers-president, the decision was taken to extend the containment measures currently in force up to and including 3 May. Do-it-yourself stores and garden centres will be able to re-open, under the same conditions as food stores. Social distancing will need to be respected. We will also allow residents of residential facilities – i.e. rest and care homes or centres for people with disabilities – to be visited by a pre-designated person. The condition is that the person in question has not shown any symptoms of the disease in the past two weeks. It must always be the same person. In line with the phase-out of the measures, fabric masks will be recommended for any situation where social distancing cannot be maintained.
