Switzerland lifts most COVID-19 restrictions -

From Feb. 17, Switzerland will lift almost all its COVID-19 restrictions, the country's Federal Council said on Wednesday, citing recent improvements in the epidemiological situation.

"Thanks to the high level of immunity among the population, it is unlikely that the healthcare system will be overburdened despite the continued high level of virus circulation," it said.

The only requirements that will remain until the end of March are the obligation for those who test positive for COVID-19 to self- isolate for five days and mandatory mask-wearing on public transportation and in healthcare institutions.

The wearing of masks will no longer be mandatory in shops, restaurants, workplaces and other public settings.

People in Switzerland will no longer be obliged to present a COVID certificate to enter bars, restaurants and other indoor venues, and the restrictions on the size of private gatherings and large events will be also lifted.
