OREANDA-NEWS On Monday, May 16, the Austrian authorities lifted all restrictions on the entry of foreign tourists related to COVID-19, Interfax writes, citing official sources. Guests of the country no longer need to serve quarantine, as well as present a vaccination certificate, a certificate of illness and a negative PCR test result. The only exceptions are citizens who arrived from countries with a high epidemiological risk. However, the Austrian Ministry of Health noted that no country currently falls into this category.

The so-called 3-G rule (the presence of vaccination, a certificate of illness or a negative test) is removed from May 16 for those entering Austria from all countries, the report says.

At the same time, wearing a mask remains mandatory in public transport, hospitals and supermarkets. To visit nursing homes and similar institutions, you still need to present a certificate of vaccination, a certificate of a previous coronavirus or a negative PCR test.

Meanwhile, an emergency situation has arisen in the DPRK due to the coronavirus. This was stated by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. He ordered the government at all levels to work perfectly to stop the spread of the disease and promised that the country will cope with the virus.
