On December 12, the partial lockdown imposed by the federal government on November 19 following the sharp increase in infections in the country will end in Austria.
The measures adopted have given good results and, for this reason, it has been decided for a gradual reopening divided by zones and regions within Austria.
After 20 days of lockdown, which had affected people not vaccinated in the country, it will be allowed to travel for tourism in Austria, taking into account the gradual reopening by date and area and any restrictions that will be maintained to preserve people’s health.
