It was not until today, Thursday, that the corona numbers reached a new high with 11,975 new infections. In addition, the number of hospitalizations continued to rise. Therefore, Upper Austria pulled the rip cord and imposed the lockdown for unvaccinated people from Monday. In an interview with the “Kleine Zeitung”, Health Minister Wolfgang Mückstein pleaded for a return to the home office, “wherever possible.” In addition to the 3G rule and increased compliance with hygiene measures, a reduction in contacts is required at the workplace.
“As Minister of Health, I recommend adhering to any measure that is effective, but at the same time low-threshold and easy to implement,” said Mückstein. With the 3G rule in the workplace, the government put in an additional safety net that brings better protection for employees. According to Mückstein, the home office has proven itself in many companies over the past few months.
