Entry by air is prohibited to third-country nationals from states outside the Schengen area.
The mouth and nose protector must only be worn in public transport, supermarkets, health care and services where the one-metre distance cannot be maintained and by August 1st indoor events up to 500 participants will be allowed. Hotels, museums and restaurants are open.
The business magazine “Forbes” has also published a list of the World’s 100 safest countries in terms of Covid-19. Austria ranks sixth among the top 10.
