Coronavirus outbreak


Swiss authorities have introduced enter restrictions and border controls. Since 15 June 2020 normal entry requirements have been applied to all citizens of Schengen states and to persons with rights of free movement from non-Schengen states, such as the United Kingdom, Ireland, Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia and Cyprus.
Since mid-June, the number of new cases of coronavirus has been rising in Switzerland. Anyone entering Switzerland from a country or area with a high risk of infection has to go into quarantine for ten days (as of 6 July). Travelers to Switzerland can find up-to-date information on the website of the State Secretariat for Migration and the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health.

Within Switzerland, the Federal Council issued a series of measures aimed at protecting the population. As of 22 June, almost all of the measures put in place to fight the coronavirus have been lifted. The ban on large-scale events for over 1000 people is set to remain in place until the end of September. In view of the increasing volume of people travelling, and the rising number of new infections since mid-June, the Federal Council has decided to make masks compulsory on public transport throughout the country from Monday, 6 July. Details can be found on the website of the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health. The website also includes a comprehensive FAQ section on how to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic while being in Switzerland.

Detailed information on the latest developments and actions taken on the European level is provided by the European Commission.
 

The European Commission is coordinating a common European response to the outbreak of COVID-19. The website provides information on the latest developments and actions, general advice, useful contacts and links, statistics and various other topics of interest for citizens and institutions.
