Munich (dpa / lby) - At secondary schools in Bavaria, the current stricter limit for distance teaching should remain until the Whitsun holidays.

Elementary schools are allowed to offer up to a seven-day incidence of 165 alternating classes in all classes from next Monday.

At secondary schools, on the other hand, the current limit of 100 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants is to remain within seven days for the time being.

Only after the holidays - from June 7th - the limit value 165 should also apply there, as provided for in the federal emergency brake.

According to information from the German Press Agency, the coalition partners CSU and Free Voters have agreed on this - but the final cabinet decision was still pending.

Exceptions also apply to final grades and fourth graders, who have alternate lessons even with higher numbers.

The CSU had originally wanted to keep the limit of 100 at all types of schools for switching from alternating to distance teaching.

On Monday, Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) then partly swung into the line of the free voters, who had called for the limit value 165 as in the federal emergency brake for all types of schools.

In the end, the CSU and Free Voters tightened the current compromise.
