Coronavirus: return to normal and planning for the transition phase until spring 2023

8 April 2022 – As of Friday, 1 April 2022, the last measures in the Covid 19 Special Situation Ordinance have been lifted: the obligation to isolate infected persons and the obligation to wear masks in public transport and health facilities. This marks a return to the normal situation, and the main responsibility for measures to protect the population now lies with the cantons again. A transitional phase with increased vigilance and response capacity is indicated until spring 2023. The Federal Council has set out the objectives and the exact distribution of tasks in this phase in a basic paper, which will go out to consultation by 22 April 2022.
