Obligation to wear a mask
In Switzerland, people over the age of 12 are required to wear masks in indoor areas accessible to the public and in outdoor areas of establishments and businesses. In restaurants and bars, guests may only remove their masks when seated at a table. The mask-wearing obligation also applies to public transport and mountain railroads. It remains important to maintain the minimum distance of 1.5 meters and the hygiene rules to prevent new infections by the coronavirus. The protective measures are valid until further notice and are not limited in time.

Covid-19 tests in Samnaun
Corona rapid tests and PCR tests are offered in the mountain practice in Samnaun-Ravaisch. Every person in Switzerland can be tested for the Corona virus once a week free of charge by means of a rapid test, this regulation applies equally to guests. A medical certificate can be issued for border crossing if required. 

PCR tests are still subject to a fee, depending on the need for a PCR test for travel abroad. 

In order to offer guests as well as locals an uncomplicated and simple service, the mountain practice (Pozstrasse 3, 7563 Samnaun-Ravaisch) asks in advance for a registration by mail (info@bergpraxis-samnaun.ch) or by phone (+41 81 822 12 00).
