What to do if you get a positive test result while in Vienna:
- If you become exposed to Covid-19 ten days before the Forum do not attend in-person! A major part of the Forum can be attended remotely.
- If you feel sick during a day of the Forum do not attend! Stay in your hotel room/at home. If you have any symptoms related to Covid-19 call the Austrian health hotline at 1450: You will be looked after by medical staff over the phone and given further information and instruction.
