In addition to the already-open businesses such as supermarkets, further businesses have been able to reopen as of 27 April 2020: hairdressing and cosmetic salons, building and garden centres, nurseries, and florists, as well as self-service facilities such as car washes, solariums, and flower fields; also nail and tattoo studios. Furthermore, physiotherapy and dental practices can once again receive patients, and health facilities can carry out all procedures.
The next stage of the easing (from 11 May 2020) concerns compulsory schools, shops, markets, museums, libraries, certain sports facilities, and restaurants. Protective measures are a prerequisite for opening or implementation.
As of 8 June 2020 (subject to decision by the Federal Council), meetings of more than 5 people are once again permitted; upper secondary schools, schools of higher education, and other educational institutions, as well as swimming pools, zoos and botanical gardens will be open again.
It remains the case that everyone should stay at home whenever possible. Events and gatherings remain prohibited, and social distance and hygiene rules must be strictly followed. Thank you for following these rules despite the announced easing and for helping us to prevent the spread of the coronavirus in the city of Zurich.
