CoronaCheck

The current Swiss strategy for responding to the new coronavirus epidemic

The FOPH changed testing criteria on the 22.04.2020.

Cantons are transitioning toward these new criteria. Coronacheck is updated in real time for each change for the following cantons : VD, FR, NE, BE, VS.

The current goal is to slow the spread of the epidemic, protect those at increased risk of complications (i.e. especially vulnerable people) and to thus allow health services to better manage severe cases.

The new strategy (since April 23) is therefore based on:

  1. Social distancing to protect the most vulnerable
  2. Prioritizing treatment for severe cases and people at increased risk of complications by healthcare services, and protecting healthcare professionals and nursing/care home staff
  3. All persons with symptoms compatible with COVID-19 are tested whenever possible. Persons who have been in contact are quarantined.
