At a press conference in Vienna, Austrian Chancellor Alexander Schalenberg announced that the whole country was in quarantine from Monday and that mandatory vaccination for all would be introduced from February 1, transmits the BBC.
“We do not want a fifth wave,” Chancellor and Health Minister Wolfgang Mukstein told a news conference.
These are the new strict rules in Austria
1. Quarantine from 9 to 24 for all – both vaccinated and unvaccinated
Austrians are allowed to leave the apartment only in exceptional cases such as buying groceries, visiting a doctor or pharmacy or going to work, although work from home is recommended, except in Vienna, where work from home is mandatory.
Compliance with this measure will be strictly checked, and violations will be sanctioned with fines of up to 1.450 euros.

Schools remain open, but parents will be advised to leave their children at home.
Masks must be worn by everyone who comes to school.
Vaccination is accelerated.

Work from home is recommended, except in some parts of Austria where work from home is mandatory.
