Germany will extend by one week restricting measures enforced around one of the two districts that were put under lockdown on June 23. 

Some 600,000 people were forced into quarantine after more than 1,500 workers at a meat processing plant in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) tested positive. 

Bars, museums, galleries, cinemas, sports halls, gyms and swimming pools will remain shut down in  Guetersloh even though the outbreak was under control, said NRW’s premier Armin Laschet.

A lockdown in the neighbouring district of Warendorf will be lifted on Tuesday because the number of positive tests there was lower than in Guetersloh.
