Today it was announced that in Rhineland-Palatinate visors are only accepted as an alternative to an everyday mask in exceptional cases.
The decision comes as a confusion, because last week visors were recognised as an alternative in other federal states.
In Rhineland-Palatinate, hundreds of companies have already equipped their employees with visors, as it is an enormous physical strain to wear masks for long periods of time.
We ourselves have also produced about 60% of our visors for various small businesses in the region. For the time being, these are no longer allowed, so we will only produce for the surgeries and clinics where visors are used for additional protection.
If the state government sticks to its ban or the mask requirement is abolished in general, we will take back all visors and recycle them into new products.
