Current situation and measures

in times of coronavirus

A "Corona traffic light" was recently introduced by the Austrian Federal Government. The four-level colour scale provides information on the new corona situation in the 94 districts of Austria and is a first, important indicator of the general situation.

The Wilder Kaiser region has shares in two Tyrolean districts (Kufstein and Kitzbühel). It is worth taking a look here at the special characteristics and geographical location of the region. The four villages are located away from the densely populated district capitals and urban areas. In this respect, the colours of the district traffic lights have only limited significance for the villages in the Wilder Kaiser region, as can be seen clearly from the village's case numbers.

Corona traffic light system

Overview and information of the traffic light colours

The Corona Traffic Light System is a tool developed by the Austrian government to indicate the risk level in the different parts of Austria. Based on the latest epidemiological data, a commission of experts gives each region, each province and Austria as a whole one of the following colours:

  • Green: low risk. Individual cases, isolated clusters.
  • Yellow: intermediate risk. Moderate accumulation of cases (attributable to individual clusters).
  • Orange: high risk. Strong accumulation of cases (no longer attributable to individual clusters).
  • Red: very high risk. Uncontrolled outbreaks, widespread distribution of the virus.
