Source: Swiss Kanton Nidwalden News in German15. October 2020 Due to a later discovered Covid 19 illness of a younger person who was in two nightlife spots in the canton of Nidwalden last Friday and Saturday evening, all other guests have to go into quarantine. This was ordered by the Nidwalden canton doctor. Around 400 people are affected. A younger person who visited two nightlife spots in the canton of Nidwalden on the evenings of October 9 and 10, 2020, developed the first symptoms of Covid 19 disease shortly afterwards. The following test was positive. The two affected restaurants – the Happy-Day bar in Wolfenschiessen and the Senkel youth culture center in Stans – were immediately contacted by the cantonal health department. They were able to hand over the guest lists within a short period of time. Although both restaurants have a valid protection concept, they do not include a mask requirement or separate sectors. Since there was a mix of the audience, it was not possible to clearly delimit the contacts, which is why the canton doctor ordered a ten-day quarantine for all guests and employees. The affected visitors to both bars have been informed of this by SMS. However, not all of the information was complete and clearly legible, especially on the slips of paper filled in by hand. Therefore, the health department appeals to those affected who live in Nidwalden who were on “Happy Day” last Friday evening or in “Senkel” on Saturday evening and have not yet received a text message about the obligation to quarantine to stay at home and contact the phone number as soon as possible 041 618 43 34 or In the case of an e-mail, a telephone number must be left in it for making contact. Other affected persons must contact the competent authority in their canton of residence. Since the number of cases in the canton of Nidwalden has recently increased mostly due to the transmission of illnesses in the private or professional environment, the health department warns that the applicable behavioral and hygiene measures continue to be applied to relatives, to be adhered to in the best possible way during leisure time and at work. A mask should be worn where it is not possible to keep your distance. Larger private or public celebrations and occasions are not recommended in the current situation. Recording using the app is less prone to errorsDue to the high number of people who now have to be in quarantine, an at least temporary increase in the contact tracing team is inevitable. If necessary, further personal support can be requested through an agreement from the Swiss Red Cross Unterwalden. In connection with guest lists, which are essential for contact tracing, bars, clubs and restaurants are advised to use an app developed for this purpose, which significantly simplifies the recording of contact details for both operators and guests. In addition, the cantonal health department continues to recommend everyone to download the SwissCovid app from the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) and install it on their smartphone.
