Those who cannot show proof of vaccination or recovery will either receive a report or an organ mandate in the amount of 90 euros will be issued. The range of penalties for violations of exit restrictions or failure to participate in controls extends up to 1450 euros. Customers who do not adhere to the 2G rule have to pay a fine of up to 500 euros, as do employees who violate the 3G rule at work. During the controls on Monday, there were not only the violations but also numerous people who were warned and pointed out to their misconduct.
For comparison: on Monday just as many controls were carried out throughout Germany as in the entire past week. A 2G check is carried out for every official act. In addition, there are focus actions by the standby units, the state criminal police offices and specialized patrols together with the health authorities in the districts. The focus is on particularly busy places or streets. Catering establishments and companies are also included in the controls.
“Thanks to the additional patrols and the standby units that exist throughout Austria, a high level of control can be guaranteed. We will continue these close-knit measures ”, said the General Director for Public Security Franz Ruf. “The police officers do an outstanding job and take on the thankless – but important – task of inspections in public spaces,” said Interior Minister Karl Nehammer (ÖVP). “It is a heavy ministry. The control pressure has been massively increased, and that will continue for the next few days. ” Overall, the population showed great understanding for the controls. People who neither have a valid vaccination certificate nor can prove that they have overcome a corona infection in the last 180 days are affected by the exit restrictions. (APA / red)
