On Tuesday, Covid certificates were issued to people who received Covid certificates > 270 days be. Hundreds of thousands of people are likely to be affected. Gastrosuisse chief Kasimir Platzer fears restaurants could incur losses.

Platzer told SRF Radio’s “Hugh Morgan” program that many visitors to restaurants do not know that their degree will expire. However, companies are ready for change, as they have been playing the role of “policeman” since September. People who will now lose their diploma will do everything so as not to be excluded from social life. But now that’s not enough anymore, which is a pity, says Platzer.

Despite the certification, there are still restaurants that do well. But reactions from many companies will be different, particularly the “2G toxic part and home office commitment” resulted in far fewer guests. It was different in the mountains with good weather conditions the past few weeks.

The Federal Council lowered the validity period of Swiss Covid certificates for people who have been vaccinated and recovered from one year to 270 days about two weeks ago. So anyone who received their second dose before May 2021 and has not been boosted or recovered for more than 9 months will lose their Covid certification from 1 February.

At the request of the Keystone-SDA news agency, the Federal Office of Public Health (BAG) said Monday that they do not have the exact number of people who may lose their diploma. The number of affected people is estimated at hundreds of thousands. An SRF Radio report indicates that about 250,000 people will be without a valid certificate as of Tuesday. (sda)
