As of Wednesday, September 15, customers in Graz Linien vehicles must cover their mouths and noses with an FFP2 mask when entering the vehicle, in accordance with a decree issued by the federal government and Graz Linien’s conditions of carriage, which have been updated as of this date.
Anyone who is exempt from wearing the FFP2 mask for health reasons must present a medical certificate from a physician established in Austria.
Children under 6 years of age and persons who cannot be expected to wear masks for health reasons, such as persons with chronic respiratory diseases, anxiety disorders or advanced dementia, are generally exempt from the mask requirement anyway. In their own interest, they should avoid using public transport during this difficult and enormously challenging lockdown phase.
Children between 6 and 14 years of age are also exempt from the FFP2 obligation according to the regulation – the previous mouth-nose protection (MNS) is sufficient here.
