Of around 350,000 people who currently visit the markets per week, only 0.005 percent ignore the coronavirus rules, Walter Hillerer, head of the City of Vienna emergency team, stated on Saturday.
The controls were carried out in four districts by the emergency team, headed by the Emergency Measures group, together with the Vienna Market Office and the police. In addition to the Viktor-Adler-Markt, the Hannovermarkt, the Karmelitermarkt and the Vorgartenmarkt, the longest permanent street market in Europe, the Brunnenmarkt, was also examined.
Market office controls the mask requirement
The police filed six reports and took four board mandates for violations of the Covid-19 protective measures.
The surrounding areas and lounging areas of the markets are also being inspected, according to a broadcast on Saturday.
