Dear guests,

Gatherings and meetings in public spaces are generally allowed again without restrictions. However, establishments are free to require certificates from guests. If no certificates are required outside, the minimum distance of 1.5 meters between groups must be maintained or effective barriers must be installed.

Private events
A maximum of 30 people indoors or a maximum of 50 people outdoors are still permitted at private gatherings (among family and friends in areas not open to the public).

Events with an audience
The certificate obligation applies to

  • Indoor events with more than 30 people (concerts, theaters, cinemas, sporting events, private events such as weddings in venues open to the public)
  • Outdoor events with more than 1,000 people<
  • Organizers may issue a certificate requirement even if it is not mandatory.

The certificate obligation does not apply

  • indoors
    if a maximum of 30 people are present
    and it is a club event or consistent group whose members are known to the organizer
    and only two thirds capacity of the room is used
    and masks are compulsory
    and no food or drinks are consumed
  • for religious events or funerals up to 50 people
  • events for political purposes up to 50 people
  • for private events up to 30 people, which do not take place in publicly accessible areas
  • outdoors for public events with less than 1,000 people

Events with a certificate requirement can forego the other protective measures (e.g. mask requirement).
Events without certificate obligation (outdoors)

  • are limited to a maximum of 500 people (with compulsory seating: 1,000)
  • can only use a maximum of two-thirds of a facility’s capacity
  • the visitors are not allowed to dance

Events and concerts where visitors dance remain prohibited

Gastronomy
The certificate requirement applies in indoor areas of restaurants, bars, and clubs. Restrictions such as the seating obligation, capacity restrictions, and the registration obligation for guests are waived in these indoor areas.
In outdoor areas (terraces), there is no certificate requirement, but establishments are free to require certificates from their guests. If no certificates are required outside, the minimum distance of 1.5 meters between groups must be maintained or effective barriers must be installed.

Discotheques and dance halls
Discotheques and dance clubs are allowed to reopen if access is restricted to people with Covid certificates. contact details of all guests must be collected.

Campings
No certificate requirement applies to the operation of campgrounds. Masking is mandatory in general indoor areas. For catering or other special offers at campsites, the respective regulations apply.

Hotels
For booking and staying in a room in a hotel, there is no certificate obligation, but for bars and restaurants, as well as wellness areas, libraries, smoking lounges, and other rooms in hotels, a certificate must be presented.

Retail
Retail trade, services, leisure facilities, and sports facilities.
Retail trade and personal services (such as hairdressers, therapeutic services, and consulting services) are not subject to a certificate requirement.

Retail trade, services, recreational facilities, and sports facilities can use their full capacity again
Only events with visitors without Covid certificate are limited to two thirds of the capacity (see "Events with an audience").

Sports and culture
For indoor sports activities such as fitness centers, climbing gyms, indoor swimming pools, and water parks, the certificate requirement applies.

  • children and adolescents under 16 years of age
  • consistent groups, with a of maximum of 30 people, who regularly train together in a separated space

For indoor areas of cultural and leisure facilities such as museums, libraries, and zoos, the certificate obligation applies.

The certificate obligation does not apply to

  • public transport, including mountain railways
  • retail trade
  • personal services, such as hairdressing salons, therapeutic and consulting services (e.g. banks or information centers)
  • private events in private places up to 30 people
  • religious events and events for political purposes up to a maximum of 50 people
  • meetings of parliaments and municipal assemblies
  • services of public authorities
  • catering services in social contact points (e.g. indoor soup kitchen/meal center)

Where there is no obligation to obtain a certificate, the existing measures apply (e.g. obligation to wear a mask in publicly accessible areas). No certificate obligation for employees
¨Employers may require a certificate for their employees. They may require their employees to have a certificate if this serves to determine appropriate protective measures or to implement the testing concept. There must be no discrimination between vaccinated and recovered and unvaccinated employees. If a certification obligation applies to employees, the company must offer regular (e.g. weekly) tests or bear the test costs if it does not offer repeated tests. The federal government cites hospitals, but not restaurants or hotels, as examples of businesses that can impose a mandatory requirement for their employees. Task force leadership is trying to get clarification on this issue by Friday.

Tourist Information
The tourist information offices are open according to the published opening hours: www.engadin.ch/contact/.

Mountain railroads
With the start of the summer season, the federal government's special provisions for ski resorts were withdrawn. For the mountain railroads, the protection concepts from last summer will presumably apply again. Thus, the mask obligation will apply as it does for public transport.
As was the case last summer, the mountain railroads plan to not fully utilize the maximum capacity of closed cabins where possible and instead operate more frequently to prevent crowding.

Public transport
Masks are required on public transport throughout Switzerland, including in waiting and access areas. This applies, for example, at stops, on platforms, and in train stations. You can find detailed information here.

Compulsory wearing of masks
The mask requirement outdoors has been lifted. Masks are still compulsory in all publicly accessible facilities and indoor areas. This includes, for example, stores, banks, and cinemas. A detailed list of all places where you must wear a mask can be found here.
