"Many long for opening steps"

"Camping by far is by far the best, safest and least contact form of regeneration for our families," emphasized the initiative. The campsites are because of the Corona pandemic closed for vacationers. Only long-term campers are permitted in most federal states under certain conditions.

The initiative emphasized: "The long restrictions of the current lockdown are gnawing more and more people and families, many are longing for steps to be taken." Safe areas are needed to give families breathing space.
