The new list includes now the classification (activity) codes for Professional Textile Care are now also included.

This means a direct transfer of 4000 euro for each business + maximum 3 months income support up to the social minimum. Furthermore getting access to a loan on special conditions,  to increase liquidity has been made possible. Further arrangements are under discussion.
