COVID-19 cases continue to rise in Austria, and Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg announced on Friday that starting November 8, only people who have had two vaccinations will be allowed into venues like hotels and restaurants, as well as events with more than 25 people.
Austria said on Friday it is barring those not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 from cafes, restaurants and hairdressers as infections approach the record set a year ago and the government struggles to convince hold outs to get the shot.
Starting Monday, unvaccinated people in Austria will be barred from entering restaurants, hotels, large events and ski lifts.
What people are saying?
Liam Hoare Austria’s partial lockdown for the unvaccinated will remain in place through Christmas and the New Year at least. Additional COVID-19 countermeasures cannot be ruled out at this stage.
Ann. Wouldn’t this kind of encourage antivaxxers who haven’t had Covid to go get infected on purpose? They don’t believe Covid is serious and many don’t believe it actually exists. This will either encourage people to vaccinate or encourage them to get infected. I bet the latter.
