On Wednesday, 8th of July the Austrian government issued travel warnings for Bulgaria, Romania and Moldova because of the worsening coronavirus situation in those countries and clusters in Austria involving people arriving from the region. Anyone arriving from these countries must be quarantined for two weeks or show a negative PCR test. This is due to the deteriorating coronavirus situation in these countries and crowds in Austria, involving people arriving from the region.
The government urges Austrian citizens not to travel to these countries, and those who are already there should contact the Austrian missions and return as soon as possible.
“Please do not travel to these countries. This is our urgent call because, on the one hand, it means exposing everyone’s health to risks, and on the other hand, we have seen that there are even more cases imported from these states,” Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said in a joint press conference with Foreign Minister Alexander Schallenberg.
Anyone arriving from those countries must go into two weeks’ quarantine or show a negative test, Chancellor Sebastian Kurz and Foreign Minister Alexander Schallenberg told a news conference. Checks at the Hungarian and Slovenian borders will also be increased, they added.
