From today, hairdressing salons have begun to work, as well as shops with non-essential goods.
Many cities are reported to have queued up in the morning in front of stores offering big discounts in anticipation of shoppers after six weeks of downtime.
Hairdressers in Austria usually do not work on Mondays, but today most of them were already open at 8:30, although traditionally their working day starts at 10:00.
To visit stores, customers will need to wear masks without fail; to go to the hairdresser, they will need a negative coronavirus test.
Schools and museums have also opened in Austria. However, restaurants and hotels remain closed. They are not expected to be open until the end of February.
We will remind you, Austria from February 10 will strengthen the already strict quarantine requirements for visitors to the country from abroad.
