Information about Corona regulations in Germany

The Livinguard PRO MASK is certified as a medical face mask Type I according to EN 14683:2019 and thus complies with the decision on the containment of the Corona pandemic in Germany, concretised by the Federal Government and States on 19 January 2021. Accordingly, the Livinguard PRO MASK can continue to be worn when shopping and on public transport. Livinguard provides documents about the certification for download. 

The concrete implementation of the adopted measures is subject to the individual Federal States. At the moment, not all binding decisions of the individual countries are available. We will keep you up to date on new developments.

About the situation in Bavaria

The tightened regulations of the Bavarian government aim to ensure the highest possible level of protection against the further spread of the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). In contrast to the decision of the Federal Government and States on 19 January 2021, which specifies “medical masks (i.e. so-called surgical masks or also masks of the KN95/N95 or FFP2 standards)”, the Eleventh Bavarian Infection Protection Measures Ordinance (BayRS 2126-1-15-G) from 15 January 2021, formulates in section 1 paragraph 2 the obligation to wear an “FFP2 mask or a mask with at least an equivalently normed standard” in public transport and retail. The Bavarian government does not specify which standard is meant here. We are currently in dialogue with the respective authorities to obtain a clear statement to the effect that the wording of the decision of the Federal Government and States is also specified in the Bavarian ordinance, and that certified medical masks such as the Livinguard PRO MASK are hereby taken into account. We will provide the statement as soon as it is available [also on our website].
