Austria

The political status in Austria

Due to falling numbers of coronavirus infections in almost all areas of Austria, the Federal Chancellery has committed to developping clearer and simpler guidelines. According to Chancellor Sebastian Kurz (ÖVP) more focus shall now be put on personal responsibility and common sense. In consequence, federal states will not be given the option of regional easing, but rather regional tightening.
