Since 01.10.2021, a new Corona Protection Regulation has been in force in NRW. The following provisions apply to both the practice and the use of sexual services in all cities and municipalities of NRW:
- All facilities and services are open to fully vaccinated and recovered persons.
- For a short term the PCR test can be replaced by a rapid test. Though it must not be older than six hours! From October 11th, 2021, the rapid tests in North Rhine-Westphalia will be chargeable and so they will be no longer free for all citizens
- There is still a mask requirement in indoor areas with public traffic.
