Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve the nightly Corona exit restrictions are lifted. However, the time of day until which it is allowed to celebrate will be fixed.

Starting today, the hard lockdown ends, but until 6 January there will be a night curfew from 8 pm to 6 am. As announced in the press conference this week, there will be an exception to this exit restriction on December 24, 26 and 31. It is still open, what exactly this means, i.e. up to which time one may celebrate Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve with the family. At the moment even the responsible Ministry of Health cannot answer this question. “The current regulation to the exit restrictions applies to 16 December, the regulation, which regulates the holidays, comes into force only starting from 17 December , explains Andrea Zefferer, press spokeswoman of the ministry of health.

What the exception passus for the holidays looks like, “these details will be announced in time”, promises Zefferer. The fact that these details are still open is also due to the fact that the ordinance on holiday regulations – like all other Covid 19 measure ordinances – must also be approved by the main committee of the parliament. But Zefferer gives the Austrians hope that at least for Christmas, a bit of normality will return. “I assume that you don’t have to go home at 10:00 p.m.”

Also not fully explained are the details of the amendment to the entry restrictions. As reported, all persons who enter the country after December 19 from a country with a 14-day incidence of more than 100 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants must remain in quarantine for ten days. Alternatively, they can be released after five days at the earliest.

There will be a few exceptions
What is certain is that there will be “a few exceptions,” says Zefferer. These exceptions are intended to affect people “whom you meet regularly, with whom you have physical contact at least once a month.
