(Bloomberg) -- Austria’s ski resorts will open up again this winter, though tourists will have to do without the usual off-piste partying, Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said.

Ischgl became a superspreader locality for coronavirus infections among winter vacationers last March and authorities have pointed to crowded apres-ski venues as a strong contributing factor. At least 28 people died and 6,000 people world-wide have registered with an Austrian lawyer claiming they think they were infected in Ischgl. Meanwhile Ischgl's hotels, restaurants, ski lift operator and other businesses that are dependent on tourism are taking measures they hope will bring tourists back for the coming winter ski season and minimize the risk of Covid infections.

Restaurants and bars will only be allowed to serve seated customers, Kurz said, as the government tries to prevent the spate of coronavirus outbreaks that marred the last winter season. He also called on Austrians to help bring down the number of infections which have led to travel warnings.

Merkel Resists Full Ban on Huawei, Making Germany an Outlier

  Merkel Resists Full Ban on Huawei, Making Germany an Outlier (Bloomberg) -- Chancellor Angela Merkel is holding the line against security hawks in Berlin to prevent a formal ban on China’s Huawei Technologies Co. as negotiators finalize the rules for keeping Germany’s fifth-generation wireless networks secure. The draft regulations would tighten the government’s scrutiny over equipment vendors, giving key cabinet members more room to flag security risks to Germany’s data, according to three people familiar with the discussions.

“Hundreds of thousands of jobs directly or indirectly depend on tourism,” Kurz said. “For all fans of winter sport, one thing is clear: there will be fun on the slopes, but without apres ski.”

The rules for ski tourism were announced a day after victims of the coronavirus super-spreading in the Ischgl resort sued Kurz’s government for damages caused by a botched response this spring.

The recent uptick in new virus cases in Austria has prompted countries including Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark and Belgium to encourage tourists to stay away from some parts of the country.
