When invading Austria end of January 2020 the Corona virus found, as it was the case in other countries, too, Government as well as society not very well prepared to handle what turned out quite quickly to be a veritable crisis of unprecedented quality. This case study - restricting itself for reasons of feasibility (given the still rapidly changing facts and norms) to the period of time from January 2020 to March 2021 - aims at assessing, from a lawyer’s perspective, the performance of the Austrian Government when dealing with this crisis, not in order to belittle what was done but with a clear view to enhance future crisis management.
