When asked by this newspaper, the police reported that Good Friday was a quiet day for them. Stripes were on the move again but rarely had to do anything. Despite the wonderful weather, most people would have adhered to the ban on meetings and the ban on contacts. In a few cases, people would have kept the safety distance after being addressed by the patrol officers.
Nevertheless, there was a lot going on in particularly popular places. Several walkers strolled along the Rhine promenade, there were recognizable families together on the fairground, but the groups kept a distance from each other. However, unreasonable people can still be found. On the playground on the Rhine promenade, for example, the prohibition signs have disappeared. Promptly, children and teenagers romped there late Friday afternoon while the adults watched.
