What do I need to bear in mind when visiting Faber-Castell?

For the protection of all concerned, a visit to Faber-Castell is accompanied by observance of the applicable hygiene and distance rules. Wearing a mouth-nose cover you have brought with you is just as obligatory as following the instructions on hygiene measures on site.

Persons who feel ill or who have had contact with COVID-19 cases within the last 14 days are asked to refrain from visiting Faber-Castell in the interests of general protection against infection.
