Retail will be closed again from December 26 until January 18, and restaurants and hotels will remain closed. And the lockdown will last even longer – until January 24 – for all those who do not participate in the second round of mass testing in mid-January. The ski resorts and lifts in Tyrol, on the other hand, will be allowed to open from December 24. An overview:

? DURATION:
The third lockdown starts on St. Stephen’s Day on December 26, and ends on January 17, but only for those who undergo a Corona free test on that day or the two days before (15th,16th).

Those who do not do so will continue to be affected by the full contact and exit restrictions until January 24 and will only be allowed to go to work or make everyday purchases, such as groceries, wearing a higher-grade FFP2 protective mask.

Even the facilities that reopen on January 18 – from trade to culture to gastronomy – may then generally only be used by those who can show a negative test. There will be exceptions for people who have already recovered from a covid infection.

⛔️ EXIT RESTRICTIONS
Exit restrictions will again apply around the clock starting December 26. Only the following reasons will be allowed to leave:

Large gatherings are not allowed. Several people from one household may only meet one person from another household.

? SILVESTER
Contact restrictions also apply on New Year’s Eve. Public fireworks will not take place. The use of pyrotechnic articles of category F2, including rockets, firecrackers or flash bangers in the local area is generally prohibited. Exceptions could be granted by mayors, but this is considered unlikely, according to Interior Minister Nehammer.

? TRADE
Apart from the usual exceptions, stores are not allowed to open after December 24 until January 18. However, there is a small relief. As in inns, picking up what has been ordered (“Click and Collect”) will be possible.

Exceptions: Grocery stores, drugstores, pharmacies, gas stations, banks, post offices, tobacconists, bicycle and car repair shops or waste disposal companies.

? GASTRONOMY and HOTELLERIE
The hope of the catering industry to be allowed to reopen on 11 January as planned is not fulfilled. Restaurants of all kinds will also have to make do with take-away and delivery services until January 18. With 18 January also the tourism with the hotel trade is to start again.

A negative Corona test will be required in order to be able to use corresponding services.

?? SCHOOL
During the vacations, per se, everything remains the same. They will end as usual with Three Kings’ Day on January 6 and not on the 10th as last planned. However, there will be another 1.5 weeks of distance learning for all school levels. Classroom teaching will start again on January 18. Teachers who do not have a negative test must wear an FFP2 mask. On-site support will probably be offered before that, as in previous lockdowns, starting on January 7.

? Kindergarten
Kindergartens will remain open for care during the third lockdown. However, the requirement for attendance in the previous year is waived.

? FRISEURE and CO.
Visits to the hairdresser or beauty salon will also have to close. Body-related services are affected by the lockdown, as are retailers, so providers can’t reopen until the 18th.

⛷️ SPORTS AND SKI AREAS
Exercise in the fresh air, such as jogging, has been allowed since the start of the pandemic, after all, and it will remain that way. Cross-country ski trails and ice skating rinks remain open. Now it can also go back to the slopes.

The decision on how and whether lifts and cable cars open is left to the state authorities, subject to minimum federal requirements. The prerequisite is an FFP2 mask in the cable car and on the lift. In Tyrol, the lifts will open for locals as planned from December 24. This was already announced by Governor Günther Platter on Friday evening.

Once indoor sports will be accessible again, a negative test result will be the access requirement.

? CULTURE and EVENTS
Hardly open, cultural institutions such as museums have to close again. As of January 18, theaters and concert halls are to reopen alongside them. However, events can only be attended after a negative Corona test. In addition, a maximum of 500 visitors are allowed indoors, 750 outdoors.

? ADDITIONAL TESTS
Teachers, waiters, hairdressers, beauticians and other employees in occupations close to the body, bus drivers and other employees of public transport with customer contact, all health and nursing occupations with patient contact and construction workers need a test once a week from January 18 or they must wear FFP2 mask.

? REGIONAL
Mass testing is to take place in areas with particularly high infection rates. A regional lockdown is also to occur there if necessary.
