5-person rule for holiday apartments
Article 6 (2) of the Covid-19 Administrative Ordner from 18 January 18 2021 stipulates that a maximum of five people may take part in events involving family and friends. This includes holidays of all kinds.
The Canton of Grisons answered the following practical questions relating to said issue
Parents with more than three children are allowed to stay in the same holiday apartment if they belong to the same household.
"Three-generation families" (grandparents / parents / children) or «patchwork families» of more than five people may stay in the same holiday apartment if they belong to the same household.
“Three-generation families” or «patchwork families» of more than five people who do not live in the same household at home, may not stay together in the same holiday apartment.
Larger “three-generation families” or holiday groups can split up in order to stay in more than one holiday apartment, as long as not more than five people share the same apartment. The family/group members are not allowed to meet (inside or outside their holiday homes) in groups of more than five people, for example, in order to dine together.)
Exception to the quarantine regulation for travelers from risk areas
According to the Canton of Grison, there will be no quarantine obligation after entering Switzerland for foreign travelers if they have been vaccinated twice or have already tested positive for the coronavirus (verifiable within the last three months). From an epidemiological / infectious perspective, it would make no sense to order immune people (be it after vaccination or after an illness) to putting themselves in quarantine after entering the country, the canton announced.
However, travelers from Great Britain and South Africa are exempt from this practice: they have to go into quarantine after entering Switzerland in any case.
