FFP2 mask compulsory in downtown Kitzbühel

In the city center of Kitzbühel, an FFP2 mask is compulsory in the open from tomorrow, Friday. This applies to highly frequented locations from 10 a.m. to 3 a.m., the state of Tyrol announced on Thursday evening. In the Kitzbühel district – where the Hahnenkamm races will take place next weekend in Gamsstadt with 1,000 spectators – the 7-day incidence was 3,410.8.

Specifically, the tightened mask requirement applies in the Vorderstadt street starting from house number 3, in the entire Hinterstadt street and in the entire Rathausplatz street, the authority specified. “A possible extension of the regulation will be reassessed in accordance with further developments,” it said. Governor Günther Platter (ÖVP) had already announced such a mask requirement at a press conference on Thursday and said that he wanted to hold on to the implementation of the ski races.

Based on the most recent amendment to the sixth Covid-19 Protective Measures Ordinance, the ordinance for Kitzbühel will expire at the end of January 23rd. A possible extension of the regulation will be “reassessed” according to the “further developments”, said the state of Tyrol.

In the ski resorts of Ischgl and St. Anton, FFP2 masks have been compulsory in busy places and streets since Thursday. It is valid until January 20th.
