Masks are still compulsory for visitors to practices, clinics and care facilities until April 7th. On April 8th it will also be over.

According to the survey, almost two-thirds of those surveyed did not have any major problems with dealing with the requirements. In retrospect, 34 percent found that, in general, it was very easy for them to comply with the mask requirements.

further results

As a consequence of the mask and test obligations, the most common reason given by 59 percent was that risk groups such as the elderly and the sick were protected. 49 percent found that this resulted in high costs. The fact that the pandemic was kept under control in Germany was true for 48 percent.

43 percent said that freedom was restricted – and that everyday activities were possible despite Corona, 41 percent. The fact that society was polarized by the measures and protection rules was true for 32 percent. 2 percent found none of the options mentioned to be applicable.

According to the survey, confidence prevails when it comes to expectations of everyday rules that may become necessary again. 23 percent believe that government protection requirements could come again next autumn and winter – 56 percent do not believe it.
