The municipality of Kirchheim is reacting to the Omicron wave that is building up: from Monday, January 17th, the town hall and all official branch offices will be closed for the usual party traffic for the time being. As the municipality announced on Friday, this should ensure that the municipal administration can “continuously offer its citizens the basic services” despite the current corona situation we run the risk of having to close the town hall completely in the event of an infection among our employees and a subsequent quarantine,” said Mayor Maximilian Böltl. The administration will continue to be available for individual concerns at any time: by telephone, e-mail and in person by arranging an appointment. A quick test at a test site is then mandatory for the appointment. This also applies to citizens who have recovered, been vaccinated or boosted. In Neuried, too, from next Monday due to the spread of the Omikron variant, access to the town hall and building authority will only be possible by appointment. In addition, a certified rapid antigen test must be presented, as the community reports. This also applies to recovered, fully vaccinated and boosted people. The employees of the administration are also subject to these requirements and are regularly tested.
