Austria as of January 31 will cancel the lockdown for the unvaccinated against coronavirus, Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer announced on Wednesday.
The decision was made due to the stabilization of the situation in hospitals, primarily in intensive care units, RIA Novosti reported.
However, the vaccinated, recovered rule remains for visiting most public places food establishments, stores, cultural and art events, which means that unvaccinated people are still barred from entering these places. There is also an obligation to wear an FFP2 mask.
According to Wolfgang Mückstein, head of the Austrian Ministry of Health, the vaccination certificate will be valid for six months for those vaccinated with two doses of the vaccine and nine months for those vaccinated with three doses.
