The state government decided this week that all schools in North Rhine-Westphalia can start teaching in full presence again from May 31, 2021 if the incidence value in the municipality is stable below 100.

  • It is compulsory to wear a medical mask (surgical mask or FFP2 mask) on the entire school premises and (of course) in class, during class work and exams.
  • Mandatory self-tests (rapid antigen tests) are still carried out twice a week for all pupils and all school staff.
  • All known hygiene and infection protection measures continue to apply (hand washing, ventilation, keeping your distance, setting up in the schoolyard, etc.)



The new regulation from the ministry also enables complete teaching in courses, so that the foreign language courses, the WPII subjects and the religious groups can also be carried out according to the timetable. Sports lessons will - as before - take place mostly outdoors, the only lesson will be swimming lessons in youth. 6 suspended until the summer holidays.
