The State Council has revised its decree implementing the federal ordinance on measures to combat the COVID-19 epidemic.

As of midnight tonight (i.e. November 18, 2020), it allows the practice of individual sports indoors, subject to sufficient space. In sports which involve travel and intense physical expenditure, the individual space must be permanently equivalent to 15 m2. On the other hand, this limit is lowered to 4 m2, when the practice is static and does not generate significant efforts. It will therefore now be possible to play tennis, badminton or horseback riding indoors, in adapted halls or in closed merry-go-rounds. It will also be possible to participate in a yoga or Pilates class in person. This measure allows sports coaches and sports teachers to resume their activities. The necessary infrastructures can therefore be opened, provided that the above-mentioned distances and spaces are respected.

In the cultural field, the Council of State authorizes rehearsals in groups of a maximum of 30 people in the professional field of entertainment. He believes that, if theaters and concert halls are closed, it is essential that cultural professionals can, subject to strict health measures, continue to practice their profession. These measures are explained on the dedicated pages, They include the wearing of a mask and the necessary space depending on the activities. Finally, for singing (choirs or soloists), rehearsals are only allowed if the protection plan is suitable. Organizers of professional rehearsals should keep a list of attendees.
