Coronavirus in Ticino

Since the Coronavirus is a very present topic and has created some insecurities, we would like to keep our guest updated about the current situation. Please find answers to several frequently asked questions below.

  • What's the current situation?
    • The number of coronavirus infections in Ticino and Switzerland is still high. The situation is constantly monitored and is under control. Throughout Switzerland there is an obligation to wear a mask in public transport and at stations and on all public indoor places. It is mandatory to wear a mask outdoors if the distance cannot be maintained. Gatherings of more than 5 persons in public places is prohibited. 

      The Federal Council has decided that restaurants, bars, dance halls, discos, museums, libraries, zoos, parks, sports and leisure facilities and facilities must remain closed until the 28th of February 2021. Shops and markets that do not sell basic groceries will also be closed from Monday January 18 through the end of February. (Exceptions apply to hardware stores and garden shops).

      Ski areas can remain open provided the protection plans are adhered to.

      For more information, we recommend visiting the website of the Federal Office of Public Health or the website of the canton Ticino (in Italian):

  • Is there a certification for tourist facilities?
    • Yes. At Swiss level has been created the label "Clean & Safe", which attests the compliance with protective measures by tourist facilities and thus strengthens guests' confidence in Switzerland as a safe travel destination. The label was developed in collaboration with professional associations.

  • What initiatives have been launched in recent weeks?
    • In recent weeks, many relaunching projects have been created at cantonal level by private individuals and partners in the territory. A selection of these initiatives can be found on the page
