Federal government policy paper on the medium- and longer-term development of the COVID-19 epidemic and the transition to a “normal situation”

At the end of March 2022 the Swiss Federal Council lifted the last remaining measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus and ended the special situation. However, the epidemiological situation remains uncertain. This means it will be necessary to maintain an elevated level of alertness and responsiveness until at least spring 2023. At its meeting on 18 May 2022 the Federal Council approved a policy paper setting down the goals and demarcation of responsibilities during this transitional phase. With the transition to a normal situation it is no longer the federal government but the cantons that are in charge of ordaining any measures such as isolation, the mask mandate and limits on access and coordinating these measures among themselves; the federal government will support the cantons as required, for example with recommendations. You will find detailed information on this in the following documents:

Monitoring reports 

Various measures are under way to monitor the epidemiological situation on an ongoing basis. You will find information and reports on the Monitoring page.

COVID-19 Coordination Group

The temporary COVID-19 Coordination Group is expected to ensure overall planning, the flow of information, coordination and harmonisation of all COVID-19 tasks at the FOPH until spring 2023.

The FOPH COVID-19 Task Force was disbanded in April 2022. You will find the minutes of the FOPH COVID-19 Task Force on the Crisis management site.
