It will no longer be necessary to provide proof of vaccination, recovery or a negative test or complete an entry form for visitors. Note that the airline or long-distance bus company can nevertheless demand a test on boarding.

In Person Meetings at ISSI 

Our top priority is to protect everyone’s health. Although all protective measures in Switzerland have now been lifted, the coronavirus is still circulating.

ISSI recommends its visitors to observe the following precautionary measures:

• Wear masks in the entire Institute, esp. in the communal areas (coffee corner, washrooms, etc.) 
• Air meeting rooms several times a day (5-10 minutes)
• Keep your distance (at least 1.5 meters)
• If you have symptoms get a test and stay at home (even if you’ve been vaccinated or have recovered from COVID)
• Wash or sanitise your hands thoroughly

Many thanks for your cooperation.
