Travelling safely on the bus and train - despite the coronavirus pandemic:

White information symbol on a round orange background

Owing to the new version of the Federal Protection Against Infection Act, a new regulation has been in effect since 24 April 2021: If the seven-day incidences in a district or in an independent city is above 100 for three days in a row, an FFP2 mask (or comparable) must be worn as mouth-nose protection from the day after next

  • In local public transport buses and trains,
  • In the associated station buildings,
  • In suburban and underground railway stations,
  • At tram stops
  • On railway platforms
  • At bus stops.

A surgical mask is not sufficient.

If the incidences are less than 100, another medical mask can be worn as a mouth-nose covering in the areas mentioned. Surgical masks or virus-filtering masks of the FFP2, KN95 or N95 standards are considered medical masks.

All people over 6 years of age must wear this mouth-nose covering, with the exception of people who cannot wear a mouth-nose covering due to health reasons. Deaf people and people are hard of hearing are also excluded from this.

Detailed information on the approved masks can be found on the website of the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (only in German).

This is how you can recognise certified masks

Certified FFP2 masks include the CE marking in combination with the four-digit number of the certifying body,  the FFP protection class, the EN norm, the name of the manufacturer and the item number.

The certified green-blue foldable masks (surgical masks) need to bear a CE marking on the packaging.
