In Switzerland, the number of corona infections is rapidly increasing again. The Federal Council has currently classified the situation in Switzerland as a special situation according to the Epidemics Act. The Federal Council calls on the population to take responsibility: Stay at home.


Impact on the economy

The appearance of the coronavirus and the protective measures taken by the authorities as a result trigger supply bottlenecks and a drop in demand, which can lead to work stoppages. As an entrepreneur, you are particularly challenged to counteract the short and long-term effects of this situation.

Short-time work as a result of the coronavirus

Short-time work is the temporary reduction or discontinuation of work in a company for unavoidable economic reasons. Loss of working hours as a result of the coronavirus is not part of the normal business risk and entitles the employee to short-time work compensation (KAE).

Package of economic measures

Federal Council increases Corona aid to over 60 billion francs.

 

Unbureaucratic, targeted and rapid. This is how the Federal Council wants to help the economy, culture and sport. It wants to prevent solid companies from getting into difficulties.



Information for self-employed persons

Self-employed persons who suffer loss of income as a result of the Federal Council's measures to combat coronavirus are entitled for compensation.

Information for home owners

Convened or planned meetings will be held in writing until further notice or postponed to a later date in accordance with COVID-19 regulation 3.

Information for tenants

Information from the FOPH

Washing your hands regularly with soap and water and keeping your distance are still the best ways of preventing infection. Continue to observe the rules on hygiene and social distancing as the coronavirus should not be allowed to spread again.
