(Reuters) - Austria will likely close schools and tighten contact restrictions to slow the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, news website OE24 reported on Friday.
The government is due to hold a news conference to present the new measures on Saturday, it added.
It also said the retail sector would largely remain open, except for shopping centres where large crowds could gather.
