We are looking forward to this year’s Electrification and All-Wheel Drive Congress and are pleased that it will take place again this year as a face-to-face event.
The Austrian Federal Government announced the next set of steps to reopen the country, that are valid beginning April 16. We would like to inform you about these steps. More details can be found on austria.info
Entry rules to Austria:
From May 16, 2022, there is no longer an obligation to provide proof, registration or quarantine for entry into Austria. The only exception is entry from states and areas with a very high epidemiological risk. When entering from these states and territories, the 3-G rule applies, registration must be completed and a ten-day quarantine must be entered.
Currently, no region is classified as a state or territory of very high epidemiological risk.
All access controls at events and in the catering area have been lifted, so there will be no access controls at the EAWD congress.
Recommendation for a safe congress visit:
As the organizers, we are making every effort to ensure that all participants have a safe and carefree stay during our congress.
From our point of view, this can best be achieved with a valid Covid-19 test (PCR or antigen test). For your own safety and out of responsibility towards other participants, we therefore ask all participants, even if they have been vaccinated or have recovered, to have themselves tested before participating in the event.
During the event, we recommend keeping distance wherever possible and to wear an FFP2 mask if you are in close contact with others. We ask you to also follow the usual hygiene measures (you will find stands with disinfectant at the event site as well as FFP2 masks).
Handling in case of suspected infection:
In case of suspected infection, individuals will be temporarily brought to a separated area and upon request will be provided an Antigen self-test. Alternatively, the guest may also go back home or to his/her hotel if the guest feels well enough.
If the guest wishes or the state of health requires it, we will inform medical service and Covid-health service 1450.
