mountain railways, hotels, holiday apartments, restaurant terraces and campsites are open. The following measures apply in the Engadin.
This list may contain simplifying formulations. It has no official character. The official ordinances apply. Information on detailed implementation is available from the cantonal information office CoronaComm at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the days following the publication of amendments, additional clarifications of open questions may appear which may contradict the current assessment. In such cases, we will publish an update of the explanation below.
If a Covid certificate is prescribed for an area of public life (for example a business, an event or a locality), this means:
No certificate obligation for employees
In a business or an event for which the certification obligation applies to guests, customers and visitors, this obligation does not apply to employees who have an employment contract with the business or the event organiser. However, a certificate is mandatory for all other persons working on site (e.g. subcontractors, suppliers, helpers, volunteers, performing artists or active sportspeople).
It is at the discretion of the company or organiser whether it requires its own employees (with a contract of employment) to have a certificate and what protective measures (e.g. compulsory wearing of masks) it imposes on them.
Employer can waive certificate requirement for employees
Employers may require a certificate from their employees (under the employment contract). They may verify the existence of a certificate if this serves to determine appropriate protective measures or the implementation of the testing concept. For this internal verification, the result of the Graubünden company tests is also permitted instead of a certificate from an external test.
There must be no discrimination between vaccinated and recovered or unvaccinated employees. If a certificate obligation applies to employees, the company must offer regular (e.g. weekly) tests or assume the test costs if it does not offer repetitive tests. This option is not only available for hospitals and homes, but also for other businesses with a protection concept, such as hotels, restaurants, mountain railways, ski schools or municipal businesses.
Protective measures indoors without the obligation to obtain a certificate
In publicly accessible indoor areas where there is no obligation to obtain a certificate, the protective measures already in force (such as the obligation to wear masks and to keep a distance) apply. These include, for example, sales premises, service establishments, hotels and accommodation establishments.
There is no certificate requirement.
For mountain railways, the regulations of public transport apply and thus the mask obligation in closed railway cabins and the interiors of stations.
No mask is required to be worn in outdoor waiting areas and on chairlifts.
The certificate obligation applies in the interior rooms of restaurants, but not on their terraces.
According to current knowledge, these rules also apply to the winter season until further notice.
The certificate obligation applies in indoor spaces 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), no certificates are required, but the establishments are free to demand certificates from their guests. If no certificates are required outside, the minimum distance of 1.5 metres between groups must be maintained or effective barriers must be installed. Registration of guest data is not required. Discotheques and dance halls In discotheques and dance halls the certificate obligation applies.
No certificate obligation applies to the hotel stay including check-in and transfer to the room.
For access to all other areas of the hotel (e.g. hotel restaurant, breakfast room, dining room, hotel bar, fitness and wellness area, etc.) the Covid certificate is mandatory and must be checked. This also applies if these areas are used exclusively by hotel guests. In all zones where no certificate obligation applies, mask obligation and minimum distances apply to all hotel guests - regardless of whether they have a certificate or not.
Voluntary certificate obligation for the entire hotel The hotel is free to impose a certificate obligation for the entire establishment. In this case, no restrictions (mask obligation, minimum distances, etc.) apply in the entire establishment.
The regulations for private meetings apply.
No certificate obligation applies to the operation of camping sites.
In general indoor areas, the mask obligation applies. For gastronomy or other special offers at campsites, the respective regulations apply.

Retail trade and services
Retail trade and personal services (such as hairdressers, therapeutic and counselling services) are not subject to compulsory certification.
Mixed forms of retail trade and gastronomy
The mixed form of retail trade and gastronomy in the same space is still possible. Separation is not necessary. The mask obligation and the obligation to maintain the required distance continue to apply. There is no certificate requirement for take-away service. Persons who wish to consume on site must show a Covid certificate. The certificate must be checked by the establishment. Only when a valid Covid certificate is presented may consumers remove the mask and consume on site, standing or sitting. It would be advantageous if the consumption areas were separated and marked accordingly. For example, place a sticker on the table stating that only those with a Covid certificate are allowed to consume on site.
Cultural and leisure facilities
For indoor areas of cultural and leisure facilities such as museums, libraries or zoos, the certificate obligation applies.
Events with an audience
