Going shopping in Burgenland is not allowed due to exit restrictions.
While Vienna and Lower Austria have extended the lockdown until – for the time being – May 2, Burgenland is opening body-related services and trade as of Monday.
This means, among other things, that the Designer Outlet Parndorf will also reopen its doors, which also attracts thousands of Viennese and Lower Austrians, especially on weekends.
Covered by exit restrictions
Of course, this is not permitted, because the lockdown has also extended the exit restrictions. And that means that people are only allowed to leave their own four walls for the five familiar reasons, such as work, meeting basic needs or mental and physical recreation.
The governor of Burgenland, Hans Peter Doskozil (SPÖ), admittedly does not believe that as of Monday Viennese and Lower Austrians will go shopping in Burgenland. The police should also control this, as also reported by Austrian daily newspaper the KURIER.
So, as with all violations of the Corona measures, anyone caught by the police who cannot credibly prove that they are traveling in Burgenland for one of the permitted reasons can be fined up to 1,450 euros. It was reported that police will check every car with Viennese or Austrian license plates to see whether its occupants have come for a walk (permitted), to buy groceries (permitted) or to store for clothes (not permitted).
