The “Clean & Safe” campaign is supported by Switzerland Tourism. Service suppliers are responsible for ensuring that the safety protocols are implemented and complied with. The relevant industries, companies and event organisers are developing safety concepts aimed at protecting their guests. These concepts are based on rules for hygiene and behaviour, as well as public health and employee protection guidelines issued by the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) and the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO).
The label confirms that a protection concept has been developed and implemented.
HotellerieSuisse, GastroSuisse and Switzerland’s non-hotel accommodation interest group Parahotellerie Schweiz have developed specific measures to ensure the safety of guests when staying in accommodation in all service areas.
Catering establishments are generally closed until and including the end of February 2021. Exceptions are restaurants in hotels for hotel guests, which are open in strict compliance with the protection concept. The protection concept for the hospitality industry under COVID-19 applies to all providers of catering services and regulates the implementation of the requirements adopted by the Federal Council in everyday operations.
Wellness facilities are generally closed until and including the end of February 2021. Exceptions are facilities in hotels for hotel guests, which are open under strict compliance with protection concepts.
The GastroSuisse and HotellerieSuisse associations have drawn up a protection concept for hotel establishments offering wellness and spa services to enable guests to use the swimming pools, saunas or steam baths.
The professional association for Swiss navigation has developed a safety protocol for the navigation sector.
The Association of Swiss Tourism Managers is compiling information regarding further safety protocols for tourism service suppliers.
These include the basic rules of the safety concepts described above.
