Berlin Senate reviews choir singingmain
Amid rising public pressure, the Berlin Senate has begun to review a ban on public choir singing that extends to the end of October.
Cultural senator Klaus Lederer is meeting scientists today with a view to revising the requirements for choral singing. He intends to form a group of virologists, pneumologists, church and choir representatives and ventilation experts to draw up new protocols for a minimum distance between the singers, among other rules.
Berlin is stricter than for the rest of Germany in its choir clampdown.
