Vienna – The Corona traffic light in Austria shows the color red for the first time: In four districts in Upper Austria, Salzburg and Tyrol – Wels City, Hallein and Innsbruck City and Country – the highest risk level for one was at the meeting of the traffic light commission on Thursday Infection with SARS-COV-2 detected, the regions are therefore set to red. In a recommendation from experts to the commission, nine districts for switching to red were up for discussion. Vienna stayed orange.

In a further 17 districts, the risk assessment is now high, so the traffic light has been switched to orange. In two of them – St. Veit an der Glan in Carinthia and Steyr Stadt in Upper Austria – the commission switched the traffic light from green to orange. In 13 districts, the risk assessment for an infection is now medium (yellow) instead of previously low (green). Only three districts were downgraded, all in Lower Austria: Melk and Scheibbs from orange to yellow and Lilienfeld from yellow to green.

The situation in Austria is increasingly worrying

Other indicators also suggest that the coronavirus is continuing to spread in Austria and that the situation is becoming increasingly worrying. For the first time since spring, a community was quarantined again, namely Kuchl in the now red Hallein district. The Tyrolean governor Günther Platter (ÖVP) announced numerous other restrictions in the late afternoon, most of which will come into force on Friday evening.

In the state, for example, the obligation to register for catering establishments is being introduced. In addition, in traffic light “orange” and “red” districts, the school traffic light is switched to “orange” and thus switched to distance learning from the ninth grade. Distance learning at technical colleges and universities will also be expanded, said Platter, who at the same time referred to the autonomy and independence of the institutions.

In particularly sensitive areas such as retirement and nursing homes, hospitals, facilities for people with disabilities and child and youth welfare, only two visitors per day will be allowed in the future. In addition, the hygiene regulations are being increased. Public events may only be held with allocated seats with a maximum of 250 people; drinks are prohibited.

In the future, attendance at funerals will be limited to 100 people. Club activities will also not remain unaffected by the new measures: The activities will be limited to the “actual club purpose” – so the canteen will have to be closed after a football game. The majority of the measures apply from Friday evening, the gastro registration obligation and the new school regulations from next Monday. They are initially valid for three weeks.

Salzburg community under quarantine, restrictions

The state of Salzburg also announced a series of measures to get the sharp rise in the number of new Covid 19 infections in the state under control. The municipality of Kuchl im Tennengau (Hallein district), where the situation recently worsened, is hardest hit. It will be quarantined. But also in the other districts of the country, some significant restrictions will apply from next Saturday.

Entry and exit are prohibited in Kuchl, exceptions are only available for the supply of food or heating material, for emergency vehicles and for commuters who work in systemically relevant professions. Within the municipality, restaurants and hotels have to close. Trade and service businesses remain open to community citizens. In addition, exit restrictions apply as with the lockdown in spring – with the well-known exceptions outdoor exercise, neighborhood help and shopping.

In addition, the ban on private celebrations outside of one’s own living space that came into force in Tennengau will be extended to all of Salzburg. In addition, a registration requirement for gastronomy is being introduced in the state. The curfew at 10 p.m. remains, except for guests in the hotel industry. In addition, no more than 100 people are allowed to attend burials nationwide.

The state is also introducing a ban on events if there are no assigned seats – whether indoors or outdoors. The serving of food and drinks at events is prohibited. In Tennengau, Flachgau, Pongau and the city of Salzburg, all pupils from grade 9 onwards will be switched to home schooling. According to Haslauer, this is what the education traffic light, which will be switched to orange today, provides. The two universities of applied sciences in Kuchl and Puch are also switching to “Distance Learning”. The measures will apply from Saturday, October 17, 12:00 a.m. until November 1, 12:00 a.m. (TT.com, WHAT)
