On19 June 2020, the Federal Council has decided that the measures put in place to tackle the coronavirus will for the most part be lifted.
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. On 27 May 2020, the Federal Council has decided on the following measures:
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
The Federal Council is now lifting most of the remaining restrictions as of 22 June. Events and gatherings for up to 1000 people will once again be permitted. However, contact tracing must be possible at all times. Event organisers must ensure that the maximum number of people that may need to be contacted does not exceed 300. This can be achieved by dividing the venue into sectors. The cantons may see fit to apply a lower number. Large-scale events for more than 1000 people will be permitted from the beginning of September, as long as there is no deterioration in the epidemiological situation. Those attending will also have to be placed in sectors.
Tourist Information Offices
The Tourist Information Offices are open according to the opening hours as published on www.engadin.ch/en/about-us/contact.The service is provided with strict compliance with the measures based on a protection concept. The guests are kindly asked to follow the current rules as shown on the official FOPH-posters.
Opening of the borders
On 5 June the Federal Council has decided to reopen the borders to all EU and EFTA states on 15 June 2020.
