Also in Rheinland-Pfalz, officials reintroduced occupancy limits of one person per 108 square feet in indoor commercial spaces. Minors do not count toward the total number of occupants.

Masks remain mandatory during outdoor events and when social distancing isn’t possible, except when eating or drinking. The Rheinland-Pfalz statement also announced a mask mandate for students at elementary and special needs schools.

Officials said they are focused on curbing the sharply increased workload at hospitals. There have been 2,320 new coronavirus infections in Rheinland-Pfalz this week alone, according to Wednesday data from the Robert Koch Institute, Germany’s disease control agency. That raised the state’s total to 234,669 cases since the beginning of the pandemic.

In recent days, Rheinland-Pfalz hospitals have admitted COVID-19 intensive care patients from other German states, including hard-hit Bavaria, governor Malu Dreyer said in a statement. Even if the situation in Rheinland-Pfalz is better than in some other states, she said, hospitals in many areas are reaching their limit.
