Austria Declines in Part of Coronavirus Relaxation

The Austrian government is forced to reverse some of the relaxations of the corona measures as the number of infections increases.


Wearing a mask in a store, bank or post office will be mandatory again from Friday.

There are also restrictions for religious services. Every believer must wear a face mask if the religious community has contacts with risk areas abroad.

Places of worship close after a positive test, Chancellor Sebastian Kurz announced.

Austria was one of the first European countries to take drastic measures against the corona outbreak.

As a result, it was also one of the first to lift these restrictions partially.
