In order to counteract the spread of the COVID-19 virus and the delta variant, a public health rule is in force that obliges all people to wear face coverings in all indoor public spaces, shops or facilities in the Mecklenburg district, regardless of their vaccination status. This requirement applies to anyone who is at least five years old.

  • The health department of the district of Mecklenburg requests all persons aged 12 and over to get vaccinated.
  • Everyone should keep washing their hands with soap and water frequently.
  • Use hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available.

Monoclonal antibodies

While vaccines are the best protection against COVID-19, treatment options like monoclonal antibodies are available if you’ve had COVID-19 symptoms or been exposed to COVID-19 for 10 days or less. When taken early, they can reduce the risk of serious illness, hospitalization, and death. Ask your doctor about monoclonal antibodies or call the Combat COVID Monoclonal Antibodies call center at 1-877-332-6585 (English) or 1-877-366-0310 (Spanish).
