2G rule in Austria in effect: only vaccinated or cured people can go on winter sports to Austria

  • Published on 8 November, 2021

In Austria, the corona measures have been tightened from Monday 8 November.

Where previously a 3G Corona proof was sufficient to enter, this has now changed to 2G-rule.

This means that from 8 November you must be vaccinated or cured to enter a restaurant or hotel in Austria, for example. this measure applies from the age of 12.

From 15 November, the 2G rule will also apply to the ski lifts. A negative test is therefore no longer sufficient if you want to go on winter sports. As a result, FFP2 masks are no longer mandatory in the ski area from then on.

Validity of Corona proof shortened

Due to the Corona measures, it will be virtually impossible for unvaccinated people to go on winter sports in Austria next winter. This is partly because the 2G rule will also apply in the ski lifts from 15 November.

In addition, the validity of the Corona proof is also shortened. A QR code is still valid for 9 months after the 2nd vaccination (this should increase the motivation for a third vaccination). A vaccination of the Janssen vaccine, which was originally intended as a single shot, is only valid until 3 January.

Those vaccinated with the Janssen vaccine who want to go on winter sports after this date will have to get a second vaccination.

FFP2 mask

The FFP2 masks are no longer mandatory in ski resorts from 15 November due to the 2G rule. In all places where the 2G rule does not apply, this mask will become the standard. For example, you need an FFP2 mask for public transport.

Romex: Newest project

The latest project Residenz Illyrica Tyrol from Romex is located in the center of Westendorf with a beautiful view of the Kitzbühel Alps and the village all around. The location is only 300 meters from the first lifts.
