New Restrictions against the spread of the Coronavirus in Switzerland
Zurich, 13/01/2021 - From December 18th, 2020 onwards, the Federal Council has restricted any sports training activities for people over the age of 16, to a maximum 5 persons, without contact, and while keeping a distance of Min 1,5 meters. These measures have been extended on January 13th to go on until minimum February 28th, 2021.
Youth under the age of 16 can continue training without restrictions, while all competitions remain forbidden.
Together with Swiss Olympic and the Federal Office of Sport (BASPO) the Swiss Rugby Union has therefore published an updated "Return to Rugby" concept for this phase, naturally accompanied by a concept of protection for its members and their families and communities.
The Return to Play Concepts can be found HERE.
The FSR encourages all its members to follow the recommendations and to reduce their contacts as much as possible.
