Portugal and Canada: other countries on the quarantine list
The Federal Office of Public Health has expanded its quarantine list due to more cases of the Omikron variant. Portugal and Canada, among other countries, are new.
Anyone entering Switzerland from an area where the novel coronavirus Omikron variant has been confirmed or may occur must submit a negative Covid test and remain in quarantine for ten days. In principle, there is also a ban on entry in these areas except for Swiss citizens and people who have a residence permit in this country.
The Omicron variant has also occurred in Portugal, Nigeria, Canada, and Japan. When boarding and entering Switzerland from these countries, all people must test negative for Covid-19 and be in quarantine for 10 days. Entry into force: 11/30/21, 00:00.
