SWITZERLAND WILL ALLOW EVENTS WITH MORE THAN 1,000 PEOPLE ON OCTOBER
On Wednesday, the government decided to allow events of more than 1,000 people from October 1, provided organizers to follow hygiene measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The government said as it seeks ways to further ease the restrictions which have gripped the country since March.
The government on Wednesday also ordered that face masks must be worn by passengers on all flights. Masks have been compulsory on buses, trains, and trams since early July.
The planned easing on event attendances comes as Switzerland seeks to strike a balance between the need to kickstart its economy as the number of COVID-19 infections starts to rise again, following the easing of previous measures.
