Non-essential food shops and services involving close physical contact have been open again in Tirol since 8 February 2021 but are subject to strict rules. The current plan is to allow hospitality locations, accommodation providers, cultural venues and leisure attractions re-open in April. The restrictions on leaving the home between 20:00 and 06:00 remain in place. It is also mandatory to wear an FFP2 face mask in all shops and on public transport. In public places you must maintain a minimum distance of 2 metres to other people. Ski resorts in Tirol will be allowed to stay open, but skiers must wear an FFP2 face masks on lifts and provide a negative test.
Since 19 December 2020 there has been a 10-day obligatory quarantine for persons entering Austria from a Corona risk area. There are plans to classify risk areas on the basis of the 14-day incidence rate of positive Coronavirus cases. All countries with a rate higher than 100 will be classified as risk areas. After five days, travellers can take a PCR or antigen test at their own expense. Only if the test is negative, can they end their quarantine earlier. Exceptions apply for business travellers and commuters, for example. Before entering Austria you must complete this Pre-Travel Clearance Form.
People leaving Tirol must be able to show a negative coronavirus test. This rule will remain in place until at least 14 April and applies to all people who live in Tirol or have spent more than 24 hours in Tirol. This rule does not apply to the district of Lienz, the municipality of Jungholz (in the district of Reutte) and the Rißtal area. Moreover, all people wishing to leave the district of Kufstein (even to go to other parts of Tirol) must provide a negative coronavirus test. This rule will also be in place until at least 14 April. The same rule applies to the district of Schwaz as well as the municipalities of Arzl im Pitztal and Virgen until at least 8 April.
