Vienna removed the requirement on March 1, after the rest of Austria lifted the similar requirement a few months earlier.
Now, while those who don’t want to wear a mask can once again travel without on public transport in Vienna, those who do want to wear a mask face fines of up to 150 euros, Austrian newspaper Kurier reports.
Previously, those who benefited from a medical exemption could bypass the obligation to wear a mask. Now, thanks to a law passed by the conservative Austrian People’s Party (ÖVP) and its populist allies in the Freedom Party (FPÖ) coalition in 2017, those who want to continue wearing masks will need a medical certificate.
The law, called AGesVG, was originally proposed to stop the wearing of the full Islamic veil, such as the niqab and burqa, but it covers all face coverings.
