From May 30, 2022: Mask-wearing requirement eliminated
From May 30, 2022, patients, visitors and employees will no longer have to wear masks in Zurich hospitals. This has been decided by the Health Department of the Canton of Zurich.
At the same time, we would like to thank you for continuing to comply with the hygiene measures to which we have become accustomed over the past two years. In doing so, you continue to make an important contribution to the protection of all persons within the hospital.
Rapid antigen test for symptomatic inpatients
Newly admitted inpatients with symptoms of Covid 19 disease will be tested for Corona virus using SARS-CoV-2 antigen rapid testing* as ordered by a physician. If positive, these patients will be isolated in a single room. Individuals who can present a Covid certificate (vaccinated, recovered or tested) will not be tested.
