On Friday, 19 June 2020, the Federal Council declared the "Special Situation" for Switzerland and repealed the COVID-19 Ordinance 2 from 13 March 2020 on the "extraordinary situation", which contained far-reaching measures. Since 19 June 2020 the COVID-19 Ordinance "Special Situation" is in force.

Still valid: the longer and closer people are in contact, the higher the probability of transmission. The coronavirus is transmitted predominantly through close and longer contact. An effective measure to contain and attenuate an outbreak of disease  hence is to keep distance (social distancing). Therefore, the hygiene measures and rules of conduct of the Federal Office of Public Health have to be followed consistently.

Easing of measures from 20 June and 22 June 2020 respectively

Below we refer to the websites of the Federal Government for information on the easing of measures.
