Restrictions have been in effect for the community of St. Koloman, which is also in Tennengau, since Monday, October 18. “The infection process in Tennengau is still extremely dynamic, we have been monitoring the situation very closely for days and with concern, because the high incidences affect the entire state,” said health officer LHStv. Christian Stöckl (ÖVP) in a broadcast on Monday. Due to the high number of infections and the vaccination rate, which is below the national average, the decision was made to take the measure in consultation with the health authorities.
55.7 percent of the population in Annaberg-Lungötz has so far been fully immunized, 64.1 percent of the population aged twelve and over. In both cases, this is below the national average of 59.1 percent and 65.8 percent, respectively.
The seven-day incidence in Annaberg-Lungötz is 2512 according to state statistics (as of today, 8.30 a.m.). Currently, 67 people are actively infected, 56 new infections have occurred in the past seven days alone. In Tennengau, seven of the nine municipalities in the district recently had a seven-day incidence of more than 400.
