On Monday, 16 March 2020, the Federal Council declared an “extraordinary situation” in Switzerland and implemented ordinance 2 on measures to combat coronavirus (COVID-19). The longer and closer people are together, the greater the likelihood of the virus being transmitted. Coronavirus is mainly transmitted through close contact over a longer period. Large gatherings of people, in particular, increase the risk that the virus will be transmitted to many others. Social distancing is therefore an effective way of stemming and moderating outbreaks of disease.
Easing of measures from 27 April 2020
On 16 April 2020, the Federal Council decided to relax the coronavirus measures starting from 27 April 2020. For businesses to open, the owners must write a corresponding safety policy containing the hygiene measures of the Federal Office of Public Health. A leaflet, "General recommendations for the implementation of safety policies within the context of gradually easing measures against the coronavirus", has been created to support businesses in writing their own safety policy.
Easing of measures from 11 May 2020
For the time being we refer to the websites of the federal administration. The updated cantonal leaflets will be available here in the near future.
