According to a survey by the opinion research institute Unique research on behalf of the magazine “Profile”, relaxations of the mask requirement are relatively unpopular. A majority of 52 percent of those surveyed see them with concern. 45 percent, however, have no concerns if the mask requirement falls on July 22, with the exception of supermarkets, public transport and pharmacies.
There is a clear difference according to party preference. While 59 percent of the polled ÖVP voters and 55 percent of the polled SPÖ voters are skeptical about the easing, only 23 percent of the FPÖ voters share these concerns. Due to the small sample size of 500 respondents, no statements can be made about voters of the Greens and the Neos. The fluctuation range of the survey is +/- 4.4 percent.
