Second week under third Lock-down in Austria (11th Jan. ’21)

Since 26.12 we are still under lock-down. It looks like Christmas didn’t cause a rapid spike of infections. However, the goal from the second lock-down to reduce the second wave under 1000 infections per day is still not reached. The actual situation, restaurants and retail closed but offices allowed keeps the curve constant at ~ 2000 infections a day. After the holidays, today is the first “real” working day.

With a negative COVID-19 test it should have been possible to access restaurants and events. However, it was not clear who would have been be responsible to check if a customer has a valid negative test and for how long a negative test result would be valid. So the opposition parties threatened to slow down the process at the Bundesrat (second chamber of parliament) by a one-time veto and the government decided to drop the earlier mass test.
