Police have been checking for 2G proof in public spaces since Monday.
On Monday, November 15, 2021 the lockdown for people who are neither vaccinated nor recovered is in force in Austria. This is controlled by the police throughout Austria. How high the penalties are and when controls are also possible in private spaces.

Just last week, Interior Minister Karl Nehammer (ÖVP) announced that the control pressure would increase “massively” in the “next few days. In addition to 4,000 police officers on patrol duty, 800 police officers are joining the control activities for the implementation of the 2-G rule. Announced were administrative fines for disregard of the 2G rule of up to 500 euros, for operators up to 3,600 euros are due. Since Saturday, at least 200 notices have been issued.

What exactly do the checks look like now? In each district at least two patrols control the measures, in addition, according to the deputy director general for public safety, Reinhard Schnakl, the provincial criminal investigation departments in coordination with the health authorities will carry out targeted focus controls in those municipalities with the lowest vaccination rates.

2G checks at every official act
Every person in Austria must show proof of 2G when asked – using the “GreenCheck” app and a photo ID match. “Anyone unvaccinated must be able to credibly show they have a reason to go out,” Schnakl said.

If customers and guests do not adhere to the 2G rule, they face an administrative fine of up to 500 euros.
If customers and guests do not adhere to the 2G rule, they face an administrative fine of up to 500 euros.
Those who fail to do so will either be charged or issued an organ mandate in the amount of 90 euros. The range of penalties for violations of exit restrictions or failure to cooperate with controls goes up to 1,450 euros. Customers who do not comply with the 2G rule are fined up to 500 euros, and employees who violate the 3G rule at work are fined the same amount. The most expensive penalty is for organizers of illegal parties or events: a whopping 30,000 euros.

These penalties loom in detail:
Refusal during 2G control: €1,450
Violation of curfew: 1.450 € fine
Violation of 2G rule as a customer: €1,450 fine
Violation of 2G rule as operator: 3.600 € fine
Violation of 3G rule at the workplace as an employee: 500 €
Violation of 3G rule at the workplace as an employer: 3.600 €

Controls in private possible
Not an issue for Nehammer is the control of private space. Only after a report of noise pollution, for example, can the authorities carry out a 2G control and punish violations. However, he appealed to comply with the rules in the private sphere as well, “even if the police cannot enter your own four walls,” the interior minister said on Sunday.
