Indoor swimming pools, thermal baths, and wellness facilities

The tourist information offices are open according to the published opening hours: www.engadin.ch/contact/.
With the start of the summer season, the federal government's special provisions for ski resorts were withdrawn.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.
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
Masks are 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.
