Covid-19 management: Switzerland’s strategy
Switzerland’s overall strategy for managing the epidemic rests on three pillars: vaccinations, tests and non-pharmaceutical measures. To achieve a normalisation of social and economic life, the Federal Council defined a three-phase model outlining the strategic approach up to the exit from the COVID-19 crisis against the backdrop of increasing vaccination coverage and the introduction of broad and repetitive testing.
Medium-term planning autumn/winter 2021/2022
At its meeting on 30 June, the Federal Council discussed ways of preparing Switzerland for the autumn and winter months and a possible renewed rise in the number of coronavirus cases. It has produced a report setting out various scenarios and its considerations on how to proceed. The focus is on the rapid identification of new variants of concern, continuing the vaccination campaign, ensuring sufficient capacity for testing and contact tracing in the cantons.
Strategic basis at federal and cantonal level
The federal government and the cantons have interrelated tasks in the management of COVID-19. This results in a need to coordinate assessments, reconcile measures and define processes. This brief strategy paper sets out to clarify the basic principles governing these issues. The aim is to protect the health of the population in Switzerland and minimise the impact of the outbreak and spread of the coronavirus as far as possible.

FOPH COVID-19 Task Force
The FOPH COVID-19 Task Force was disbanded in April 2022. Most of the tasks that the FOPH will continue to assume to manage COVID-19 have been incorporated into the appropriate organisational units. 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.
Below you will find the minutes of the FOPH COVID-19 Task Force from November 2020 (in German). To avoid influencing ongoing decision-making, minutes are only published a month after each meeting.
