On Friday 11 September, Switzerland decided to place nine French regions on the list of states and territories at risk. This implies an obligation of quarantine for any person returning from these regions on Swiss territory.
The Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) has added nine French regions to its list of areas at risk. Passengers landing in Geneva and coming from France will have to respect a ten-day quarantine from Monday 14 September, if their stay in Switzerland exceeds 24 hours. They must report to the competent health authorities within 48 hours During their flight, they will have first filled in a traceability sheet issued by the airline they have travelled with.
List of regions concerned in France:
Passengers who have travelled to a risk area for professional or medical reasons and who have not been able to postpone their trip are exempt from quarantine. However, the stay in France must not have exceeded five days.
This is not an entry ban and therefore there is no closure of the border. There will also be no additional border controls.
Border areas are excluded from this list. This new announcement will therefore have no impact for cross-border workers who will be able to continue to cross the border for professional reasons.
