The German lockdown, which was initially valid until November 30, 2020, has been extended to January 10, 2021.
Germans are only allowed to see members of one other household. Outside.
But Hallelujah !!! An exception to that rule has been introduced for Christmas.
Then ten people from other households may be invited.
Whether schools can remain open depends on regional policy.
Catering, gyms, hairdressers, museums and ski resorts are and will remain closed.
