Authorities have made a public appeal to anyone who attended a nudist club in Tyrol over the weekend to “monitor their health” after an attendee tested positive for coronavirus.


Health officials in the small Tyrollean town of Reutte are calling for anyone who may have attended the ‘Sixth Heaven’ (6. Himmel) nudist retreat over the weekend to look for potential coronavirus symptoms. 

As reported by Heute, a coronavirus-infected person attended the nudist club on Saturday October 31st and Sunday November 1st.

Given the close proximity to other attendees and the apparent lack of masks, authorities are concerned about a possible superspreader event. 

“If symptoms such as cough, sore throat, fever, shortness of breath or the sudden loss of the sense of taste and smell occur, the health hotline 1450 should be contacted immediately” wrote Tyrollean health authorities. 

“Anyone experiencing symptoms” should in any case get in touch with their GP by telephone.”
