According to information from the APA news agency, the corona quarantine for corona infected people in Austria falls. This emerges from a regulation text that is to be presented to the public later in the afternoon and that is available to the APA. According to the regulation, anyone who does not feel sick can leave the house even after a positive corona test, but is subject to traffic restrictions. This means that FFP2 masks must be worn unless the infected are outdoors and at a distance of two meters from other people. In addition, entry bans for visitors are planned in hospitals as well as nursing, disabled and spa facilities.
Health Minister Johannes Rauch and Labor Minister Martin Kocher want to officially present a “variant management plan” at a press conference later this afternoon.
Rauch told the “Tiroler Tageszeitung” (Tuesday) that you “simply have to acknowledge that we cannot live with this level of crisis caused by the pandemic for years to come”. If the situation worsens again, the corona measures would be tightened again. In the fall, the gas crisis, inflation and the war in the Ukraine threaten a difficult situation for the population anyway. “I am Minister of Social Affairs and Health, so the social issue and the question of social upheavals concern me at least as intensively as the Corona crisis,” Rauch told the newspaper.
