Fifth week under third Lock-Down in Austria (1st. Feb. 2021)

We’are in the fifth week in the third Lock-Down in Austria. Better called a not-so-lock-down because a recent study conducted by Invenium shows that the actual lock-down reduces the mobility of people only by 20 percent. While in at the first Lock-Down in Spring 2020 the travelling behavior decreased by 75 percent. In general, the actual Lock-Down from 26th December 2020 till today isn’t very effective any more. Schools are (more or less) closed. There is no education on site but families can bring their kids for day care and in some schools this are 2/3 of the regular class.

Popular Petition

This week the period for support on three popular petitions ended. The first petition want’s to establish ethic education at school for all students no matter if they attend any religious education as well. The second petition addresses the well-being of animals, especially those in the food industry. The last one requests a law in the constitution that vaccination must not be mandatory. All petitions can be signed online if you are using the governments mobile signature app

Fun fact, two other petitions can be supported. One for Mandatory-Vaccination No! and another for Mandatory-Vaccination Yes! If you like trolling, you can support both đŸ™‚

Mandatory vaccination yes ! no ! .. whatever

Vaccine Information Registration Form

The government has put up a web site to get informed about vaccinations. <sarcasm>Because Austria is such a huge country, each state has now its own information registration platform.</sarcasm> You have to provide name, age, contact information, preconditions (sometimes depending on your state), etc. You don’t get an appointment, but you will be informed if you can apply for an appointment or if something in the vaccination plan is changing.

Online Exams

The second semester under Covid-19 restrictions is coming to an end. Like in summer there is no education at the university campus. Lectures are done remote and exams as well. In most cases you have to attend a Zoom meeting and present an ID card. The exam itself is an online test. Sometimes you have to write and upload a PDF document, sometimes you can put your answers direct into a questionnaire. It is said that the university management is not so happy with this online exams. But for me its very convenient to take the exam at home. Hopefully we can keep this modus operandi in the future for exams.
