Companies of more than ten people are not allowed to gather in public places.
The country imposed obligatory mask mode, which will remain active at least until January 17.
As we reported earlier, Austria introduces a strict quarantine from November 3 to 30.
"From Tuesday, November 3, from midnight to the end of November, there will be a second isolation in Austria," the official statement said.
Restrictions are imposed on staying outside the home from 20.00 to 06.00. Leaving the house at this time is allowed only in exceptional cases.
By applying them, the government intends to avoid overloading the healthcare system and a shortage of beds in hospitals for the medical care of COVID-19 patients.
