New Coronavirus

Switzerland is in an extraordinary situation. The number of cases is increasing rapidly. The entire population is affected and urgently called upon to take responsibility. To limit the number of severe cases of the disease and prevent our healthcare system from being overloaded, we need to act together.
The Federal Council calls for members of the public to act responsibly and with solidarity. If you have symptoms of illness, stay at home and do not go to public spaces. The new measures are directed at everyone: both members of the public and professional circles. The measures are designed to help limit the spread of the virus as far as possible. The aim should be to make sure that people are better protected from the novel coronavirus, especially those who are at a higher risk of becoming severely ill. We can all help by following the recommendations (both the new ones and those issued previously):

Keep your distance – for example: Protect elderly people by keeping adequate distance from them; Keep your distance when queuing or waiting in line; Keep your distance at meetings.
Wash your hands thoroughly.
Avoid shaking hands.
Cough and sneeze into a tissue or the crook of your arm.
If you have a fever and are coughing, stay at home.
Only go to the doctor or A&E once you have notified them by phone.
