Easing of measuresim february 2022
On 29 January 2022, following consultations with the General Government COVID Crisis Coordination (GECKO), the Austrian Federal Government discussed the further course of action in the coming weeks. Based on the scientific findings to date and the forecasts of the forecasting consortium, the following regulations will come into force in Stages in February 2022:
- From February 12, 2022, the 2G rule will no longer apply in retail. The FFP2 mask requirement will then apply in all shops.
- From 19 February 2022, the 2G rule in gastronomy will be extended to the 3G rule. The validity of PCR tests will be shortened to 48 hours for the catering industry – for all other areas, the validity of PCR tests will remain at 72 hours as before. If PCR tests are not available, antigen tests are also valid for a period of 24 hours. The 3G rule will then also apply to events (instead of the previous 2G rule).
All other measures remain in place:
FFP2 mask requirement
The FFP2 mask is mandatory in all closed rooms. For us, that means FFP2 masks are mandatory throughout the center.
There is no prescribed minimum distance to people from other households. However, it is recommended that a distance of 2 meters is maintained from people outside the household.
2-G proof as access authorization for customer areas
