Good Morning, Gute Morgen, Goedemorgen, Bon Jour, God Morgen, Dobre Rano,
First of all, Thomas and I wish our participants a Happy and sunny Easter Sunday and hope you are all healthy and safe.
Today, April 12th, the Austrian Government has published the latest information about the lock-down restrictions in Austria.
As you can see, after Easter the smaller shops and parks will open again and at the end of April they will evaluate if schools, theatres and sportfacilities will need to be closed any longer. Per 1st of May, the shops and hairdressers will be re-openend again, and per 15th of May they will see if hotels and restaurants can be re-openend step-by-step.
But the most significant is that untill the end of JUNE it is forbidden to have meetings, gatherings, or festivals. So the ECM as we planned it, would simply not be allowed.
Well, we had quite a few comments on our decision to postpone the ECM to June 2021, but ALL of them were positive and understanding. Thomas and I are happy that we made the right decision and gratefull for your support.
