Austria to open schools, shops and ski slopes as country eases Covid-19 lockdown for Christmas


Ski lifts will be allowed to operate in Austria from Christmas Eve, and primary schools and shops will reopen from Monday, Chancellor Sebastian Kurz has announced as the country plans to relax its coronavirus lockdown.

A 10-day quarantine is to be imposed on people entering Austria from countries where there have been more than 100 Covid-19 cases per 100,000 in the past fortnight, effectively preventing skiers coming in from neighboring Italy and Germany.

Kurz said on Wednesday that the new measures are designed to push infection numbers down until December 23 in order to allow the public to meet with up to 10 people from any number of households between December 24-26 and on December 31.
