COVID-19: Revised entry requirements for neighboring countries
13 Oct 20
IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? Switzerland has revised its quarantine requirements for those traveling from neighboring countries.
- Beginning Sept. 14, only those regions of neighbouring countries where the infection rate is greater than 60 cases per 100,000 will be added to the list of countries and areas that are deemed to have an increased rate of infection, not the entire country.
- Travelers from high risk regions will need to continue to follow all COVID-19 entry requirements, which includes a ten-day quarantine. The regions that are deemed high-risk include the region in France that includes Paris and the region in Austria that includes Vienna. The full list was updated Oct. 12 and is available here.
- Border regions may be exempted from inclusion on the list even if they have a high infection rate. Cross-border commuters do not need to quarantine.
