BERLIN (AP) – Germany’s health minister urged residents and visitors to wear face masks indoors to protect themselves and others from the coronavirus, but acknowledged that current data does not justify mask use.
A mask requirement for indoor areas largely expired nationwide this spring, but the requirement for places such as hospitals and nursing homes remains in place. The libertarian FDP, which is part of the country’s governing coalition, has been particularly vocal in pushing for an end to COVID-19 measures.
