On 14 April 2021, the Federal Council decided to reopen the outdoor seating areas of restaurants on 19 April 2021. In its press release on the same day, the Government of the Canton of Basel-Stadt welcomed this cautious relaxation, despite the rising infection figures.

To prevent an uncontrolled rise in local infection figures in areas that are known to be hotspots, the Government of the Canton of Basel-Stadt has at the same time passed a new paragraph in the cantonal Covid-19-Ordinance. In accordance with the new § 3d (Additional Measures), the cantonal physician can order special protective measures in hotspots (e.g. Steinenvorstadt), in particular general compulsory mask wearing in the local area or a local ban on consuming food and beverages on common ground.
