Switzerland will drop its 10-day quarantine rule from tomorrow (Saturday 4 December), French news agency AFP is reporting.

The Swiss authorities introduced the rule less than a week ago, but say doing no longer makes sense now the Omicron variant is also circulating in Switzerland.

AFP said the Swiss Government confirmed: “All countries are removed from the quarantine list as of Saturday.”

Everyone entering Switzerland must present a negative PCR test, except those crossing the border from neighbouring Austria, France, Germany, Italy and Liechtenstein.

People must be tested again between the fourth and seventh day after entering the country.

Visitors who are currently quarantining will no longer have to do so but will have to comply with the day 4 and day 7 test rules.
