Dealing with Corona

You want to come and visit us?

Unfortunately, because of Corona, we cannot be an open place as we would like to be at the moment. Day visitors who keep their distance and wear a mask are ♥welcome♥.

+++ Please call us in advance on the grove phone 015175666847 – especially if you want to stay here overnight! +++

It is important to us to deal responsibly with the current Covid-19 situation. Here is our concept on how new people can live in the forest for a longer period of time.

All people staying in the forest for a longer period of time see themselves as one household. Nevertheless, basic hygiene rules should also be observed within the household, e.g. no sharing of dishes. Anyone wishing to join the household should isolate themselves for 5 days beforehand and then carry out a rapid test (with a negative result). This rule is not a strict requirement and can be adapted to needs.
Isolation can happen in the forest or elsewhere beforehand. Isolation before arrival in the forest greatly relieves the structures here. The isolation can be spent alone or in a group – but no new contacts should be added during the isolation period. Of course, this also applies to the people with whom a person is isolated together.
We consider contact to be encounters where there is a higher probability of infection. The assessment of whether a particular contact counts as such is left to the people themselves. Our assessment is as follows: a medium full train with FFP2 mask is “no” contact; outside in the wind without a mask closer than 1.5 metres is not; in a stuffy room together for a few hours with a mask it is…

If you want to spend the previous isolation in the forest, please bring your own sleeping place (a tent, van, caravan or similar) for the initial period. If you do not have this equipment, please call us and we can organise some. In general, the enclosed and heated rooms will be available for you to use during the isolation period, if we coordinate and keep our distance for the first time. Outside these rooms there is also all the infrastructure you need for everyday life: Outdoor kitchen, campfire, toilet, dry sleeping places…
