The Federal Council has decided on the following measures:
Keep at least 1.5 metres away from other people, and continue to observe all safety recommendations and other social distancing rules as well as the hygiene rules issued by the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH). All open businesses must comply with strict requirements to protect the health of employees, customers, teaching staff and students.
Masks compulsory on public transport:
In view of the increasing volume of people travelling and the rising number of new infections since mid-June, it has decided to make masks compulsory on public transport throughout the country from Monday, 6 July. Persons over the age of 12 will have to wear a mask in trains, trams and buses, as well as on mountain rail and cableways and on lake and river boats. In addition to that, masks are also compulsory on horse carriages, on the National Park train and on board of the Bus Alpin.
All touristic facilities have reopened since 6 June 2020, e. g. mountain railways, camping grounds, tobogganing runs or rope courses. All leisure and entertainment businesses such as casinos, amusement parks, zoos and botanic gardens may reopen, as can swimming pools and spas.
As of 22 June, there will no longer be a requirement for customers at restaurants to be seated. The Federal Council is also lifting the fixed closing time for restaurants, discos and nightclubs.
Events and gatherings:
At its meeting on 12 August, the Federal Council took the decision to re-allow events for more than 1000 people from 1 October. Strict protective measures will apply and the events will have to be authorised by the cantons, taking into account the local epidemiological situation and their contact tracing capacity.
