Covid-19:

Due to the renewed increase in the incidence of Covid 19 infections in Germany, especially in Thuringia and the neighboring federal states, it was necessary to introduce new measures that will enable the safe continued operation of the FLI.

Key points are the implementation of the legal requirements of the amended Infection Protection Act, such as the introduction of a 3G regulation at the workplace and the renewed priority of activities in the home office.
