Today, after the elementary schools, classes in secondary schools are also back in session five days a week; the coronavirus-related shift work of the past few months has ended.

In eastern Austria, this means that all young people will still be able to learn together in class on 33 days, while in the west it will be 38 days due to the later summer vacations. Hygiene and distance rules will continue to apply at school, and mouth/nose protection or FFP2 masks will also remain mandatory.

Those wishing to attend classes must also continue to regularly perform a rapid antigen test in class or provide proof of a PCR or antigen test or vaccination performed at another authorized agency.

“Test pass” for access
A new feature is that schools can now issue test passes for learners and teachers for the rapid antigen tests for other areas of life. For this purpose, all students from the age of ten will receive a sticker pass on which the tests are documented by a sticker; teachers will receive a certificate.

These certificates then entitle the holder to enter swimming pools and restaurants, for example. Currently, around 8,000 students (or their parents) have refused to take a test, which is 0.8 percent of the 1.1 million students and half as many as when the tests were introduced. These students must continue to teach themselves the material at home.
