Easter with contact restrictions

 
The exit and contact restrictions were extended throughout Germany until 19 April. People will have to refrain from family visits over Easter as well (more about this here). In any case, asylum seekers living in an first reception facility (LEA) should not leave the city. There are several reasons for this:
For example, most residents of a LEA are subject to a residence restriction.  This means an obligation not to leave the city. Most asylum seekers are subject to this obligation even before the Corona pandemic. Violation of this obligation can result in penalties and problems in the asylum procedure. Also, violations of the current Corona Regulation could lead to further fines. For example, if you take part in an Easter celebration with more than five people or by leaving the state boundaries without permission. Even after returning to the initial reception, asylum seekers would have to expect complications: For after a longer absence they would have to undergo further isolation or quarantine.

Current fines in connection with Corona


On 30th March the government of Baden-Württemberg published a catalogue of fines. These are fines imposed by the police in connection with the corona virus. This happens only when people do not follow the instructions and prohibitions of the Corona Ordinance.

Here are just two examples of possible penalties:

Staying in public places with more than the permitted number of persons (currently: 2 persons) can result in a penalty of 100 to 1.000 € per person.

Participation in an event or other gathering outside public space of more than five people at a time, e.g. a dance party or birthday party, can result in a fine of €250 to €1.000 per person.

The complete catalogue of fines can be downloaded here
