In accordance with cantonal directives, sports and leisure facilities, including sports and fitness centres, artificial ice rinks and swimming pools are forbidden for adults. The use of facilities and establishments in the fields of culture and sport for the activities of children and adolescents under 20 years of age is still permitted.
The fitness centres and gyms will be able to reopen on 19 April, provided that a strict protection plan can be implemented. Indoors, sports are permitted for groups of up to 15 people. The use of machines in a fitness centre is not considered a group activity, as each person works out separately. Therefore, these areas can accommodate more than 15 clients. All persons present must wear a mask and maintain a distance of 1.5 m. In addition, capacity limitations apply. If the sport activity cannot be performed with a mask, exemptions are possible. However, each person must have sufficient space, i.e. 15 m2 for a quiet, static activity and at least 25 m2 for other sports. The number of people without masks is limited to 15 per room.
All other individual outdoor sports (winter hiking, snowshoeing, ski touring, tobogganing, running, etc.) are still permitted.
