Austria sees second wave of Covid-19, mandates masks in public indoor places

Austria has seen a rise in Covid-19 infections, reporting 869 cases on Saturday. Masks will be mandatory in most public indoor places from Monday on, including all stores, museums and government buildings. Events will be limited to 50 attendants indoors and 100 attendants outdoors if no fixed seating is available. Events with spaced seating will be limited to 1,500 attendants inside and 3,000 attendants outdoors.

Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said he expected that the stricter measures will stay in force "for a long time", and Vice-Chancellor Werner Kogler said that the government wants to avoid a second lockdown.
