General information


Staged plan for Corona pandemic control

Corona regulations will be determined according to the number of intensive care beds occupied by COVID-19 patients in the hospitals:

Stage 1 – If an occupancy of 200 intensive care beds is expected, the following measures will come into effect:

  • Antigen tests are only valid for 24 hours from the time of test collection
  • Wherever oral and nasal protection is currently provided (retail food stores including sales outlets of food producers as well as petrol stations with associated sales outlets of food products, pharmacies, banks, post offices, public transport) an FFP2 mask will become mandatory
  • In addition, wearing an FFP2 mask in retail outlets will become compulsory for unvaccinated people; for vaccinated people, however, wearing an FFP2 mask is also recommended! Random checks will also be carried out by the police.
  • The 3-G rule applies to gatherings of as few as 25 people (currently the limit is 100 people).
  • Stricter control of the measures in force

Stage 2 – After 300 occupied intensive beds have been exceeded, the following measures will come into force:

  • In night catering and similar settings, as well as in gatherings without assigned seating with more than 500 persons, only vaccinated and/or recovered persons have access (2-G rule)
  • Antigen tests with self-acceptance (“living room tests”) are no longer valid for 3-G

Stage 3 – After 400 occupied intensive care beds have been exceeded, the following measures come into effect:

  • There will be an expansion of access restrictions. Wherever the 3-G rule applies, only vaccinated and/or recovered persons or persons who can show a negative PCR test will have access.

Stage 4 – Occupancy of 25% or 500 beds (without 7-day follow-up):

  • Wherever the 2.5 G rule applied, the 2G rule then applies (restaurants, recreational facilities, sports facilities, culture, body-related service providers, etc.). Exception: The 2.5-G rule applies at the workplace. This means that there are still no restrictions for vaccinated or recovered persons.

Stage 5 – Occupancy of 30% or 600 beds (without 7-day follow-up):

  • From this point on, exit restrictions will apply for unvaccinated persons, i.e. leaving one’s own private living area will only be allowed due to a few exceptional reasons such as work, daily needs, close caregiver, etc. Vaccinated and recovered persons will also remain unaffected by this stage.

Adaptation due to the Omikron variant

The FFP2-mask must also be worn outdoors if a distance of at least two meters is not or cannot be maintained between persons who do not live in the same household.

Adjustment of quarantine regulations: in the future there will be no category 2 contact persons. In the future, persons who have had at least 3 immunological events at least 7 days prior to contact (e.g. 3 vaccinations) will not qualify as contact persons. All contact persons as well as persons who have tested positive can be cleared by PCR test from the fifth day onwards. Contact persons in critical infrastructure can continue working with a daily valid test as well as a FFP2-mask.

From February, 1st 2022, the validity of vaccination certificates in Austria will be shortened. Vaccination certificates of the first vaccination series (2 vaccinations or recovery + 1 vaccination) shall then only be valid for 180 days. Booster vaccination certificate (3 vaccinations or recovery + 2 vaccinations) shall remain valid for 270 days.

    Today, we think about tomorrow.
    We feel strongly about Tyrolian nature and saving its resources.
