Austria will repeal most measures against coronavirus from July

Although the night curfew has been lifted since the beginning of July, it will no longer be possible to dance and drink alcohol in clubs, discos or bars. It will continue to be consumed only at the table. The so-called night gastronomy is not to be opened until the summer, with the exact date to be decided at the end of June.

The Minister of Tourism, Elisabeth Köstinger, took care of a certain confusion when she stated that the restrictions on nightclubs should be fully lifted by 1 July. However, Mückstein subsequently refuted this. “Nightlife is an area that is still relatively unprotected because many adults have not yet been vaccinated,” the health minister said, noting that a decision on the possible lifting of the remaining restrictions would be taken later this month.

The government’s plan to loosen the measures was criticized by nightclub operators. There is no reason why people should not drink alcohol or dance if they are vaccinated, tested or cured of covid-19, said Stefan Ratzenberger, chairman of the industry association. He also does not like the fact that the cabinet leaves companies with uncertainty by delaying the final decision.

Further restrictions associated with coronavirus infection end in Austria on Thursday. The rules of mutual spacing are relaxed – instead of two meters, one will suffice, the beginning of the night curfew will be moved from 22:00 to midnight, restaurants will be able to serve up to 16 people outside and eight indoors at a time, not counting children. So far it has been ten and four. More customers will be able to go to the shops at one time. Spectators at cultural events will be allowed to be up to 75 percent capacity. In outdoor areas, the obligation to wear a veil is completely abolished. Restrictions on travel abroad will also be relaxed.
