▶ According to the Robert Koch Institute, the district of Cloppenburg had by far the highest 7-day incidence in Lower Saxony on Saturday with a value of 342.9.

A Facebook user who railed on the “Empire” profile: “Incidence over 340 and you are massively violating the Corona rules, that’s probably the last thing! Hopefully the penalty will be appropriately high! “

The day before the party, the disco operators had announced on their side that everything should run properly.

There it says: “We have prepared well for a quick and smooth entry on Friday to the ‘Project Friesoythe Mega House Party’ in 3 areas.”

The rules of the evening: “You must wear a mask on the entire site until you have gone through the cash register! Have the Luca app ready for check-in. Have your vaccination card / proof of recovery or test result for U18 and your ticket ready. “

That was obviously no longer so important on Friday evening. The operator of the “Empire” could not yet be reached for BILD inquiries.
