Many in shared accommodation facilities currently do not know what is going to happen in the face of the Coronavirus pandemic. Some accommodation facilities are under total quarantine. Others have enforced new measures—unfortunately, a uniform regulation for shared accommodation facilities do not exist in Germany (yet). Your facility's management will notify you of the way your accommodation centre will continue to run during the next few weeks. Currently, effective resolutions are being sought and discussed. If there are significant problems in your accommodation centre, contact and inform the Refugee Council. You can find the responsible Refugee Council on fluechtlingsrat.de.
