In Austria from Monday, mandatory Green Pass at work

FFP2 on cable cars, PCR test needed for nightlife

(ANSA-AFP) - BOLZANO, OCT 26 - In Austria, on Monday, the Green Pass obligation comes into force at any workplace, but not for those who work alone, such as truck drivers. First, however, there will be a two-week transition during which the untested worker can do his job while wearing an FFP2 mask.

The "3-Gs", which stand for "geimpft, genesen or getestet" (vaccinated, recovered or tested), apply to all workplaces, where "contact with other people cannot be excluded." The ruling specifies that "two contacts in the open air of no more than 15 minutes" are permitted each day. With the "3-G" entry into force, the FFP2 obligation at work is ruled out, except in hospitals and nursing homes.

As for nightlife, such as discos and "apres ski," the antigenic test is no longer sufficient, but the PCR test is needed. In addition to the Green Pass, the FFP2 is also compulsory for enclosed ski lifts (gondolas). Furthermore, the "3-G" will be mandatory to attend Christmas markets. (ANSA-AFP).
