There are some interesting changes coming to the restrictions in cantons under yellow and orange alerts. August will start with 9 days of an opening phase followed by 12 days of closure and then another opening phase will run from August 22-30.
Services and establishments allowed to operate fully can do so from Monday to Sunday without time restriction. Those restricted to 50% occupancy are also able to operate each day without time restriction.
More services will be open. We will have the chance to go to pools, beaches, gyms, museums, art and dance academies, and movie theaters, for example, as long as we respect the social distancing and mask wearing requirements. For adventure activities, masks must be worn while getting safety equipment on but can be taken off during the actual activity. At movie theaters, we can sit with those in our social bubbles but must respect distance between the bubbles.
Vehicles will be restricted differently in the closed and opening phases. During opening phases, there will be just two days per week you can’t drive whereas during the closed phase there will be just two days a week that you can drive.
