However, the current developments in Europe and Germany show that the situation can change on a daily basis. In this respect, we will continue to monitor the situation closely.

For a more objective discussion of Covid-19 we refer to the websites of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Robert Koch Institute (RKI).

Regardless of the current situation, Deutsche Messe already offers a high standard of hygiene, safety and medical care.

Nevertheless, Deutsche Messe increases cleaning measures for heavily frequented areas (entrances, door handles, escalators, etc.). For example, additional disinfectant dispensers will bei set up on the exhibition grounds. During events, medical personnel trained in infectious diseases will also be on hand on the exhibition grounds.

Deutsche Messe has a well-established emergency management system and experience from previous special situations. A task force reassesses the current situation daily, a close exchange with the health authorities is maintained and possible measures are planned and implemented accordingly.
