The following important rules apply for visiting our hut after the reopening:
- Basically “2G” documentation is required (proof of a Corona vaccination or recovery)
- Compulsory registration of stays of longer than 15 minutes
- FFP2-masks are required – except at your table
- Social distancing (1 metre between groups of persons)
- Overnight stays must be booked in advance. No overnight stays without prior booking.
- Curfew is at 10:00 p.m.
Stricter rules from 08.11.2021 for winter tourism
Due to the dynamic development of infections and the increase in intensive care bed occupancy, the federal government and the provinces have agreed to tighten the rules. Level 3 and 4 measures of the existing level plan will already apply throughout Austria as of November 8:
- Wherever the 3-G rule applies, the 2-G rule (Vaccinated/Genese) will be introduced
- Tests of any kind will then no longer be permitted as access authorization
- A transition period of four weeks will apply to the 2-G proof. During this period, a vaccination with PCR test is already considered as proof - thus, full immunization is not required during the transition period.
Rules for Safe Winter Tourism
To make a safe and successful winter season possible, the Ministry for Tourism and Health has devised actual rules for the winter.
The existing 3-stage plan already provides in part the legal framework.
Phase 1: currently
Phase 2: 7 days after the capacity utilisation of intensive care beds exceeds 15% (300 beds)
Phase 3: 7 days after the capacity utilisation of intensive care beds exceeds 20% (400 beds)
NEW Phase 4: Occupancy of 25% or 500 beds (without 7-day follow-up). Wherever the 3G or 2.5G rule applied, the 2G rule then applies (restaurants, leisure facilities, sports facilities, culture, body-related service providers, etc.). Exception: 2.5G rule applies at the workplace. This means that there are still no restrictions for vaccinated or recovered persons
NEW Phase 5: Occupancy of 30% or 600 intensive care beds (excluding 7-day follow-up). From this point on, exit restrictions will apply to unvaccinated individuals, i.e., leaving one's own private living area will only be allowed due to a few exceptional reasons such as work, daily needs, close caregiver, etc. Vaccinated and recovered persons will also remain unaffected by this stage.
Après-ski and night gastronomy
- In general, the same rules apply to après ski as for night gastronomy. In phase 1 guests must provide a negative PCR-test, a vaccination certificate or a recovery certificate. Antibody proof or an antigen test is not sufficient.
- 2G documentation (vaccination or recovery certificate) applies to businesses operating in night gastronomy as well as après ski bars from phase 2 onwards.
- Regulations for unvaccinated employees: Compulsory wearing of a FFP2-mask as well as regular PCR tests – at least 3 times a week - are required.
- In the future, reduced curfew and break curfew will be made possible for après ski. In additional, not only the provinces and district authorities, but also the municipalities should be able to introduce stricter measures via the Covid-19 Measures Act or the Epidemic Act. Details are being checked.
- 85 percent of the cable cars are open vehicles with a lower risk of infection and a journey time of less than 15 minutes. To secure the winter season, the cable car companies are taking additional measures for safe winter holidays in Austria.
- Phase 1 – 3: Since 15 September 2021, compulsory wearing of FFP2-masks has been in effect for visitors.
From the start of the season onwards (October), the 3G-rule will be in effect:
- If proof for admission is introduced, it will have to be checked when the passes are sold.
- Work is underway on a practicable implementation for operators and visitors (e.g. linking the online sale of passes for automated control).
- Visitors have to carry valid 3G documentation any time and present it in case of controls.
- The obligation to wear FFP2 masks remains.
- If the epidemiological measures are not observed by visitors, the cable car companies should be released from their transport obligation.
- Measures going beyond phase 3 – in particular restrictions for the unvaccinated – will be carried out in accordance with the general measures.
