Germany has approved new COVID measures to try to prevent a rise in cases this winter.

The new measures will come into force on 1 October and remain in place until 7 April.

They were approved by the Bundestag (the German parliament) yesterday.

From next month, everyone over the age of 14 will have to wear an FFP2 mask on long-distance trains.

Children aged six to 14 will have to wear masks, but they don’t have to be FFP2 types.

Passengers won’t have to wear masks on domestic or international flights, as had been proposed earlier, but this might change if cases rise.
