No Rest for the Wicked

The German administration no longer plans to implement “days of rest” over the Easter Break. The proposal was withdrawn shortly after it was announced due to legal and factual problems relating to the implementation of such days of rest. Chancellor Angela Merkel apologized to the German public for the confusion caused by the announcement. Both 1 April and 3 April 2021 will now be treated as regular working days which are subject to the same rules as before.
