- Flea market at the Veltins Arena is canceled
- Private celebrations with a maximum of 25 people
Celebrations in commercial rooms can only take place with a maximum of 50 guests – previously 150 were allowed. At parties in private rooms, the city appeals to celebrate with a maximum of 25 guests – but this is not a rule. The flea market planned for tomorrow at the Veltins-Arena is also falling victim to the increased corona numbers in Gelsenkirchen. It should actually take place for the first time in months. Gelsenkirchen had already exceeded the warning level of 35 new corona infections per 100,000 inhabitants in seven days at the weekend. The value is currently 44.1. According to city spokesman Martin Schulmann, two larger weddings were essentially the trigger for the increased numbers.
