Adjusted regulations for customers entering Germany from high incidence areas

We would like to thank our customers who have purchased on site in Straelen-Herongen this week and followed the new, stricter rules that were introduced on the instructions of the Public Order Office of the city of Straelen. After a consultation with the Public Order Office, which we have contacted again after intensive exchange with our customers, we have been able to achieve adapted rules for our customers, which make shopping on site in Straelen-Herongen easier.

The following regulations will come into force with immediate effect for people entering Germany from high-incidence areas:

  • For border commuters (`Grenzpendler´) and cross-border commuters (`Grenzgänger´) – which also means our regular customers – a negative test result not older than 72 hours before entry is sufficient.
  • If border commuters and cross-border commuters are unable to provide a negative test result regarding an infection with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus upon entry, they are obliged to have a test for infection with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus carried out immediately after entry.
  • The wearing of an FFP2 mask in the auction room and foyer (including the Markt-Bistro) remains mandatory at all times, also while purchasing at your bench in the auction room.


Our employees will carry out checks on the aforementioned rules.

Test offer for customers entering from high incidence areas
In cooperation with an external service provider, we continue to offer our customers from high incidence areas PoC rapid tests on site in Straelen-Herongen:

  • Test days in Straelen-Herongen:

We have adjusted the test times according to the new rules, in order to give our customers the opportunity to do a test on Fridays as well. In addition, there are also various options to be tested in Germany (test centres North Rhine-Westphalia) or the Netherlands.

All further information can be found on the website of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
