Znüni News – Thursday September 24

Next year the World Economic Forum will not be taking place in Davos. Instead it looks quite likely that the Bürgenstock Resort will be the hosting venue for this international and, seemingly, prestigious event. Confirmation should follow in the coming weeks.

Starting in October only fans holding season tickets will be allowed to go and watch the FC Lucerne play in the Allmend stadium. This is because of the reduced numbers of seats allowed to be sold; instead of 9000 spectators only 7300 will be allowed. The spectators will be expected to wear masks for the duration of the match, except when they are eating & drinking. Failure to do so could lead to a “red card”, a two year ban from visiting the stadium. The management hopes that this measure will be enough of a deterrent, the last thing they want is for the stadium to have to close its doors to spectators again.

After Cyprus and Denmark, Belgium is expanding its high risk zones to include several cantons in Switzerland bringing the number to 14 regions: The two Appenzell, Aargau, Basel-Stadt, Bern, Jura, Neuenburg, Solothurn, Schwyz, St Gallen, Thurgau, Wallis, Zug and Zurich. A negative test and quarantine is recommended but not imposed on Belgian citizens returning from these regions. However Belgians are not allowed to visit the cantons Freiburg, Geneva and Waadt.

Meanwhile 2500 students from the Hotel Management School in Lausanne have had to go into quarantine, this after several clusters were started during student parties. Courses continue to be taught – online.
