The latest developments in new infections have left no other choice. In addition to Salzburg, Upper Austria will also go into lockdown from next Monday. The reason for this is the tense situation in the hospitals. In Salzburg schools and kindergartens are to be closed as a matter of principle. However, care should be made possible for those who need it.
According to Haslauer, the lockdown will be issued by the federal government at the request of the two federal states. This also creates the basis for any other federal states. A decision by the main committee of the National Council is necessary, which is expected to meet on Friday after the end of the regular National Council meeting.
