Switzerland extends closure of bars, restaurants & museums until Feb end

Switzerland on Wednesday decided it will extend coronavirus measures, including the continued closure of bars, restaurants, gyms and museums, until the end of February.

The government will start a consultation process with cantons - which will include considering imposing stricter measures - with a final decision to be made on January 13. Several measures are set to be extended until the end of February. 

This includes the closure of fitness centres, restaurants and museums. 

One important change however would be that “role model cantons” - i.e. cantons with a lower infection rate - would no longer be granted an exception to the measures. 

As The Local Switzerland reported on Monday, several French-speaking cantons had been given an exception to the national measures due to lower R-Rates. 

This allowed them to avoid putting in place the federal measures - provided their R-rate stayed below 1. 

This exception was however rescinded as these infection rates climbed. (Source: The Local)
