The federal government announced on Thursday relief in the mask requirement. Where “3G” (access only for vaccinated, tested, recovered) applies, falls from 1 July the mask obligation also indoor. From July 22, mouth-nose protection is to be worn only in public transport and stores of daily use, FFP2 masks only in hospitals and nursing homes. In oe24.tv, Chancellor Sebastian Kurz (ÖVP) now held out the prospect of an end to the mandatory wearing of masks in shops and public transport.

Until July 22, in any case, mouth-nose protection will have to be worn in trade and public transport. If the situation continues to develop well, however, there will also be further relief here. “If possible, we will reduce there as well.” Unlike in Asia, the mask is not part of the culture in European countries, he said. “The mask should not become a permanent condition,” Kurz was quoted as saying in Sunday’s edition of the Austrian daily newspaper “Österreich”.

Wearing the mask not a permanent condition
With Kurz’s announcement of a possible mask out, one seemed in the Ministry of Health meanwhile initially little enthusiastic. It was “definitely too early” to talk about further relaxations after July 22, a spokeswoman for Mückstein said as published in Kurier daily newspaper.

The online edition of the Kronen Zeitung, citing Mückstein’s environment, said that masks will very well be required to be worn in supermarkets and pharmacies after July 22, as recently declared by the government.

Late Sunday evening, however, Kurz and Mückstein demonstrated unity in a joint statement to APA. As of July 22, further relaxations would be made if the situation allowed, the two noted. Relaxations would be made gradually, as before. “Wearing the mask should not become a permanent condition. We will make relaxations in the mask requirement when the good situation allows,” they said in unison.

Currently, the incidence is just over 10, they said. “If this good development continues and remains stable, we also want to make relaxations in the mask requirement in stores for daily use and in retail.” There is close coordination here and the decision will be announced jointly after the situation has been assessed, Kurz and Mückstein stressed.
