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.
