In Austria, only restaurant gardens can open before Easter and allow youth sports activities outdoors, but participation will be conditional on a negative coronavirus test, the Austrian government decided on Monday. One province, western Vorarlberg, is in such an exceptional position that, thanks to its good pandemiological indicators, restaurants as well as sports and cultural facilities can open as early as 15 March.

“The growing number of new diseases a day does not allow for the wide-ranging openings expected by many,” Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz explained the decision. However, as there is a significant difference in the pandemiological situation between the eastern and western parts of the country, the government decided to open regionally. (MTI)
