Valin Posted November 14, 2021 Share Posted November 14, 2021 Hot Air Jazz Shaw Nov. 13 2021 It appears that Austria and Australia will soon have more in common than most of the letters in their names. We previously learned that unvaccinated Australians will be looking at being essentially confined to their homes for the foreseeable future following sweeping new government mandates. But now the government of Austria is preparing to follow suit. Austrian Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg made the unofficial announcement on Friday, with an official order expected in the next few days. After seeing another surge in new COVID cases, Austria’s government had already put a number of restrictions in place, but under the new order, there won’t be any wiggle room left. Also, the number of people under mandatory vaccination orders is being expanded. The lockdown order initially only covers two regions, but on Sunday they plan to take it nationwide. (The Hill) (Snip) The Chancellor went on to ensure that no one misunderstood the intentions of the nation’s leadership, saying, “we give the green light this Sunday for a nationwide lockdown for the unvaccinated.” *And what does that lockdown mean? They had already taken some initial steps last week. The Health Minister issued an order barring the unvaccinated from various recreational venues including salons, restaurants, theaters and bars. But now the mandate is far more sweeping. The unvaccinated will “not be allowed to leave their homes” except for trips to take care of essential shopping, brief periods of exercise (alone) and to go to work. And the “work” exception will only apply if your employer permits unvaccinated workers, which does not apply in all cases.
