We’re so pleased you’ve decided to spend your holiday in Vorarlberg! Since the coronavirus pandemic (SARS-CoV-2 pandemic) began, your health has been our greatest concern. We’ve been able to ensure this in recent months by testing more than 2,000 employees a week in the tourism sector and taking comprehensive protective measures in companies.
And the “traffic light” system introduced by the Austrian Federal Government has the same goal: to keep our guests and the residents of Vorarlberg safe. It uses the colours green, yellow, orange, and red to indicate which preventive measures should be used at the regional level.
However, as a guest in Vorarlberg, you are subject to the traffic light regulation of the Vorarlberg provincial government: it offers you more detailed information and shows what rules apply in your specific holiday location or region.
The traffic light system is purely an instrument of management and prevention to protect everyone’s health. It recommends courses of action for certain regions or institutions: wearing protective masks over the mouth and nose, rules on social distancing, maximum number of people, tests, follow-up, and so forth. Those recommendations help minimise the risk of infection to a great extent.
The traffic light colours do not indicate travel restrictions. Travel recommendations and warnings for certain countries will be established by your home country’s government. Please familiarise yourself with them before beginning your trip.
Accommodation, gastronomy and recreational facilities are open in Austria. Together, our goal is to reduce the risks of the coronavirus pandemic and its effects as much as possible in order to offer society and our guests a carefree and safe holiday in Vorarlberg and to support our businesses and partners in measures that will enable us to continue to keep the doors open. Understandably, personal responsibility and vigilance are our top priorities. We look forward to welcoming you!
