Download the SwissCovid app

Please download and install the SwissCovid app from the normal app stores:

The SwissCovid app complements conventional contact tracing. It notifies users if they have spent a certain length of time in close proximity to a person infected with the coronavirus. In order for the app to send the notification, the person infected, on testing positive for the virus, is given a ‘covidcode’ by the cantonal medical service to enter into the app. Installing and using the app and entering the code are all voluntary.
