New coronavirus

Since 6 June, further measures have been eased. Many of the previously restricted leisure, entertainment and sports activities are now once again permitted as long as attendance lists are taken, and precautionary measures and rules on hygiene and social distancing are observed.

The Federal Council still categorises the situation in Switzerland as extraordinary under the terms of the Epidemics Act. It issued a series of measures aimed at protecting the population, which are now gradually being eased. You can find further information on the current situation, and guidance for people at especially high risk, the workplace, and health professionals details under Measures, ordinance and explanations.

Continue to follow the rules on hygiene and social distancing. The new coronavirus must not be allowed to spread again.
