Like many other countries, Austria is reporting cases of infection with the Coronavirus. The Austrian Federal Government has reacted promptly and implemented extensive measures to contain the spread of the virus. In addition to flight bans, border controls and border closings, extensive restrictions in public life have been implemented troughout the whole of Austria. Schools and universities are closed or offer e-learning courses. Shops remain closed (with exceptions such as food retailers). Also, restaurants are closed. All events are prohibited, No more than five people should gather in one place at the same time. The population is urged to stay in and leave their homes only if necessary.
All these measures will entail a substantial change in everyday life. However, the containment of the Coronavirus and the health of the general public and our guests has to be our highest priority.
