Without 2-G proof, Austrians are only allowed to go to work, walk and buy groceries starting Monday. Children under twelve are exempt. First vaccinated could show PCR test.
In Upper Austria, exit restrictions for unvaccinated come as early as Monday
The “lockdown for the unvaccinated” is set to take effect across Austria on Monday night. This will allow Austrians without 2-G proof to leave their homes only for reasons already known from previous lockdowns – such as for necessary errands, work and education, or physical and mental recreation. Children under twelve are exempt.
“Unbearable,” “serious” and “worrying” – this is how Federal President Alexander Van der Bellen describes the situation that the government is trying to master. The figures – 13,152 new infections on Saturday, 421 patients in intensive care – force action. At the virtual Corona summit of government and provincial governors Sunday morning, more than the “lockdown for the unvaccinated” for all of Austria is likely to be discussed and decided in the evening in the main committee of parliament.
For all Austrians, the FFP2 obligation returns in closed areas of public space (e.g. underground passage), regardless of vaccination status (except only 6- to 14-year-olds, for them mouth-nose protection is enough). A statement by Finance Minister Gernot Blümel shows how serious the situation is in the high-incidence states of Salzburg and Upper Austria. “Due to the currently necessary tightening, there will be a need for further economic aid for particularly affected businesses.”
