At present, masks are compulsory in all places of daily use in Austria, such as grocery stores, public transport, drugstores and pharmacies.
This could be extended again in the fall. A general indoor mask obligation is being examined, Health Minister Wolfgang Mückstein (Greens) told “oe24.TV.” “We are constantly checking whether an expansion is necessary here,” he told APA.

Because the number of new infections with the coronavirus is rising continuously. In the past 24 hours, ministries in Austria reported 850 new cases. “We are at the beginning of the fourth wave and assume further increasing numbers especially in the colder season. We are therefore regularly evaluating the situation and closely examining what measures need to be taken,” Mückstein said. The basic rules such as keeping distance and washing hands will continue to accompany us, “also the mask remains a simple and efficient measure to contain the spread of the virus,” the minister stressed.
