Switzerland, the Federation of Tourism is not entirely satisfied

The Swiss Tourism Federation (STV) is delighted with today’s decision by the Federal Council to lift the quarantine in favor of COVID testing. In contrast, the extension of the testing requirement to all is deemed excessive.

The quarantines that have been imposed up to now have led to numerous cancellations at tourist establishments, emphasizes the organization in a statement. The industry is therefore satisfied with the cancellation of this measure for travelers.

The extension of the testing obligation represents «a clear competitive disadvantage for Swiss tourism», the STV continues. These tests are expensive and could lead to many people, especially families, not choosing Switzerland as a destination.
