When and where should a mask be worn to protect against corona infections? In view of the increasing number of cases, a debate flares up again that was actually never completely settled.

Signals from Federal Minister of Justice Marco Buschmann (FDP) for a mask requirement indoors in autumn met with a mixed response. The health policy spokesman for the FDP parliamentary group, Andrew Ullmann, was skeptical. “I think a targeted mask recommendation is better than a general mask wearing obligation,” he told the “Welt”. He told the editorial network Germany that he only considered it appropriate to wear masks in hospitals and care facilities.
