Q4: Do I need to wear a mask?

The mask-wearing requirement applies all over Switzerland in many different places and situations.

The general rule is: always wear a mask if you are unable to maintain a distance of 1.5 metres from other people, and where no physical barrier such as a partition is in place. Mask-wearing is particularly important in enclosed and poorly-ventilated spaces. You should also wear a mask, for example, during car journeys with other people.

Below you will find a list of where and in what situations you must wear a mask.

Restaurantsare fully open (the inside and outside). It is however limited to a maximum amount of people per table: maximum 4 people per table inside and 6 per table outside. Wearing a mask is mandatory in the restaurant when standing up. When seated the mask can be taken off
