Information on Coronavirus

Balgrist University Hospital is currently offering all its medical services in compliance with the protective and hygiene measures recommended by the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) and Swissnoso. You will always find the latest information on dealing with the coronavirus here.

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.

*Exceptions: individuals who have already survived a Covid 19 exposure or have a negative test result in the last 24 hours and proof of vaccination will be exempt from rapid testing. A written document must be provided for all exemptions.

Regulations for patients and visitors

Mandatory use of face masks and hand disinfection

Mandatory use of face masks and hand disinfection
Like everyone else at Balgrist, patients and visitors are obliged to wear a surgical mask and observe the well-known protective measures both in the hospital building itself and everywhere within the hospital grounds. Please disinfect your hands before entering the hospital and wear a mask (available at the main entrance). Cloth masks are not permitted.

Instructions “Hand disinfection / How to wear a mask” (in German)

Rules for visiting and staying in hospital

  • Maximum two visitors per day
  • We ask visitors to wear a surgical mask for the entire visit.
  • Patients also have to wear a surgical mask when they leave their bed or room and whenever members of staff or visitors enter the room

Hygiene and distancing rules

  • Do not shake hands
    In view of the current situation, all members of staff, patients, and visitors are instructed not to shake hands.
  • Social distancing
    Avoid direct contact with other people and maintain a distance of 1.5 meters whenever possible. Avoid group activities.
  • Hand hygiene
    Disinfect your hands at the main entrance before entering the hospital. Wash your hands regularly and thoroughly with soap and water.
  • Dispose of used items correctly
    Discard used masks and paper tissues in a closed trash can whenever there is one available and wash your hands thoroughly afterwards.


The following rules apply to events at Balgrist University Hospital:

  • A maximum of 50 people* may be present at an event (including both external guests and members of staff).
  • If it is not possible to maintain a distance of 1.5 meters, appropriate protective measures such as wearing a mask will be imposed and partitions provided wherever possible.
  • Anyone with symptoms should stay at home and get tested.
  • A list will be provided at the beginning of each event to record those present. All participants should add their names to the list.
  • Protective strategy for events

*The Federal Council, however, will decide on May 26 whether a limit of 100 instead of 50 people will now apply indoors and 300 instead of 100 outdoors.
