“As of Monday, June 22, the measures put in place to tackle the coronavirus will for the most part be lifted. Only the ban on large-scale events will remain in place until the end of August,” the government of Switzerland said in a statement.

More than 31,000 people have tested positive for the virus and 1,680 have died in Switzerland since the first case was reported in late February.

New cases have dwindled to a few dozen per day, allowing Switzerland to reopen schools, shops and borders with fellow member states of the Schengen passport-free travel zone. However, the economy, like many others, is in a sharp recession.

Citing scientific data and experience from managing the first Covid-19 wave, “the current situation is no longer comparable to the situation at the beginning of the year,” the government said.
