The Federal Council still classifies the situation in Switzerland as an exceptional situation under the Epidemics Act. Nevertheless, it is now gradually relaxing the measures – while strictly observing protective measures. From 27 April 2020, hospitals will be able to carry out all interventions and medical practices, hairdressing, massage and cosmetic studios, DIY stores, garden centres, flower shops and nurseries will be able to resume operations. Protecting the health of the population remains the top priority, while at the same time keeping economic damage to a minimum.
