Wittenberge (dpa / bb) - The President of the Brandenburg Association of Towns and Municipalities, Oliver Hermann, expects the state government to propose proposals for the postponed model projects for corona openings.

There are many initiatives in communities that should be given a chance, said the non-party politician of the “Märkische Allgemeine” (Saturday).

According to the newspaper, he initially favors model projects that are limited in time and place for a group of people and can be easily controlled with tests, such as the opening of a swimming pool or a sports field.

"This is more suitable for rural areas than the" Tübingen model ", where an entire city is opened up," says Hermann.

Prime Minister Dietmar Woidke (SPD) had initially postponed the plan of local openings due to the increase in the number of corona infections.
