Obligation to wear masks

In Switzerland, persons over 12 years of age are required to wear masks in indoor public areas and outdoor areas of institutions and businesses and in busy pedestrian areas. In restaurants and bars (only for hotel guests), guests may only take off the mask when seated at a table. The obligation to wear a mask also applies to public transport and mountain railways. It remains important to maintain a minimum distance of 1.5 metres and to observe the hygiene rules in order to prevent new infections with the corona virus. The protective measures are valid until further notice and are not limited in time.

Please observe the protection concept of the municipality of Samnaun for public spaces.
