Headline: Coronavirus – New provisions on controls and political demonstrations in the cantonal COVID-19 ordinance
The cantonal authorities will strictly monitor the application of the anti-pandemic protection plans approved by the prefectures. If they find violations, the prefectures and the cantonal police can immediately close the offending establishments, if the closure does not allow any postponement. Closures ordered by the cantonal police must be approved a posteriori by the competent prefecture. The Executive Council also decided with immediate effect to limit participation in political demonstrations to 15 people due to the epidemiological risk and to suspend the deadlines for the collection of signatures on municipal and cantonal objects. The Executive Council welcomes the measures taken today (December 18) by the Federal Council to contain the pandemic.
