Austria announces easing of Covid-19 lockdown

Starting Feb. 8, there will be face-to-face classes for elementary school students, shift work in lower and upper grades and regular testing for students.

The first steps towards opening up the hard lockdown have also been taken in the retail sector, museums and zoos. There, as in the food trade, there will be an FFP2 mask obligation. Also, only a few customers will be allowed into the stores. There must be 20 square meters of space per customer.

Entry requirements, however, will be tightened. A negative Covid-19 test result will be mandatory to be allowed into the country.
