Vienna Opera imposes tough new audience testNews
Covid-19 is rampant again in Vienna and the authorities are tightening restrictions.
Here’s the latest from the Staatsoper:
From Friday, November 19, according to the ordinance of the City of Vienna, the 2G-Plus rule will apply to events of 25 people or more.
This means: Even if you are fully immunized with a double vaccination, have even received the third jab, or recovered from Covid, you must also show a negative PCR test when you visit our performances.
This test must be no more than 48 hours old and must be valid until the end of the performance. The date and time of the test acceptance apply and not the result. As of Friday, the FFP2 mask requirement applies again in the entire building, including during the performance.
We are aware that these guidelines of the City of Vienna mean difficulties for you, but we ask you to comply with them, as otherwise we will not be allowed to let you in despite a valid admission ticket and 2G proof.
