As of today, Austria is divided in two: In the East, much stricter rules apply.
Regulation. Since midnight, life in Vienna, Lower Austria and Burgenland is further restricted. In the rest of the country, the previous Corona measures apply.
Exit restrictions apply for 24 hours
➔ Exceptions: In the three eastern provinces, the following applies: day and night, people are only allowed to leave the house in exceptional cases. These are the well-known reasons: the way to work, purchase of the most necessary, pharmacy & doctor visits, averting danger and, of course, short recreation.
Take-away goods and food allowed after all
➔ Take-away: New exception: shopping via Click & Collect (pick-up) is allowed. But you have to stay in the area of the strict lockdown. The Viennese cannot pick up his goods in Lower Austria. Take-away also remains allowed.
Who is allowed to visit me during the lockdown period?
➔ 1 + 1: Large family celebrations are prohibited. The “1 + 1 rule” applies in the east: persons of a household may only meet with one other person. No matter if inside or outside. This applies too: whether a person visits a family, or the residents of a household visit an individual. So if the mother wants to visit her daughter, she is not allowed to take the father with her, unless the daughter lives alone. In all other federal states, the following applies: Until 8 p.m., 2 families (max. 4 adults, 6 children) can come together.
Can I go to church for mass?
➔ Yes: Masses take place, but with strict measures (distance, mask …).

➔ Alone: Anyone leaving the East needs a good reason. For example, the visit of a close person. You can visit grandma, but only alone. A married couple could not travel together. Exception: An extended family could meet at the vacation home in Carinthia if all members were registered there as secondary residents.
