On the last day of 2020, the government presented the legal basis for the “freest possible”. The law is under review by January 3rd and should come into force on January 18th before the start of the planned possible openings. The amendment allows people with a negative test and all those who are exempt from exit restrictions. The details are still to be regulated by regulations.

According to the government, the infection situation should be reduced with the free mass tests. Health Minister Rudolf Anschober ( Greens) wants to present the specific rules for the tests in the first week of January – then it should already be precisely defined which professional groups should be tested regularly – teachers and health professions should be part of it. The legislative resolution for the mass tests is also planned for the beginning of January.
