Switzerland to order Dutch travelers into quarantine from Monday | 1 NL Times | Instant News

Anyone planning to travel to Switzerland after spending time in the Netherlands will be asked to enter quarantine for ten days. The decision was made because the Netherlands had shown the number of SARS-CoV-2 infections increasing rapidly, a figure that rose on Friday to around 2,800, the most in a single day.

“The Swiss government has decided to reimpose travel restrictions for travelers from the Netherlands starting September 28, as the number of infections in the Netherlands has increased,” the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Friday. As such, the Dutch Government will designate Switzerland as an “orange code” country, meaning people can only travel there if necessary.

The Netherlands also warned people against traveling to the Swiss cantons of Geneva, Friborg and Vaud because of the coronavirus situation there. “After living in these cantons, you will undergo a home quarantine for 10 days when you return to the Netherlands,” the ministry said. Self-isolation is not required for persons entering the Netherlands after visiting other parts of Switzerland.

“You can travel to Switzerland, but stay alert.”
