Those who violates the obligation to wear a FFP2 mask, must expect in the future with an organ penalty mandate of 25 euros. This is provided for in a new regulation of the Ministry of Health, which was announced yesterday.
Already on Thursday, the main committee of the National Council had passed the new ordinance to extend and tighten the lockdown. In addition to the extended distance requirement from one to two meters, the exit restrictions were thus also supplemented by the obligation to wear FFP2 masks in trade, public transport and service providers, among others.
The new regulation now imposes a fine of 25 euros on those who do not comply with this FFP2 mask requirement. The new measures come into force on Monday.
FFP2 mask obligation also in medical practices
As of Monday, FFP2 masks will also be mandatory in all doctors’ offices. This was recently pointed out by the Vorarlberg Medical Association. President Michael Jonas asked all patients to wear an FFP2 mask exclusively when visiting a doctor.
