Mayor Geisel meets event organisers

On Friday 12th March, Mayor Thomas Geisel meets Düsseldorf residents representing local customs, fairs and exhibitions and sport, in order to discuss with them how the decree issued by North-Rhine Westphalia’s Ministry for Labour, Health and Social Affairs concerning its effects on events is to be handled, given the spread of Corona Virus.

The instruction banning events with more than 1,000 participants applies “until further notice”, whereby how long the restrictions will remain in force cannot be predicted. The meeting is to address the question of how the financial hardships resulting from the state government’s decree can be mitigated.
