23 guests, a waitress and the owner celebrated on Saturday night in a restaurant in Vienna-Ottakring, in the middle of the Corona lockdown of the gastronomy. Local residents complained about the noise and the constant coming and going, whereupon the city police detachment moved out and found the place to be “full operation” at around 11.30 pm, reported police spokesman Daniel Fürst.
“Those present neither wore face masks, nor did they keep the minimum distance,” reported the police. Therefore, several advertisements were placed under the Covid-19 Protective Measures Act.
An action by a man in the Große Neugasse in the Wieden district led to only two corona penalties, but even more attention. In the window of a shop he delivered an electronically amplified musical performance with singing. Up to 50 onlookers gathered – mostly in compliance with the Covid measures – in front of the window and obstructed traffic, which is why the police were called.
“The people were asked to leave the lane. This request all followed, only one man remained on the street. He was reported,” said the spokesman. “The musical performance has ended.”
