In the cantons of Friborg, Vaud, Neuchâtel and Valais, public establishments (restaurants, bars) will be closed from Saturday evening, December 26. For the sake of harmonizing cantonal systems, their governments are thus giving up making use of the derogation possibilities still authorized by federal law for public establishments.
Consultation between the governments of the French-speaking cantons has continued in recent days. Noting that the cantons of Bern, Jura and Geneva are already subject to the federal regime, the governments of the cantons of Friborg, Vaud, Neuchâtel and Valais have chosen to give up making use of the possibilities of derogation still authorized by federal law to catering establishments. This measure takes into account the evolution of the epidemic (in particular the stabilization of the number of cases at a high level or the recent mutation of the virus) and the impossibility for certain cantons of Western Switzerland to make use of the possibilities of exemption. under federal law.
The governments of the French-speaking cantons will continue their exchanges over the next few weeks, as well as they will remain in close contact with the federal authorities and will make a new situation in view of the start of the school year in early January.
