Covid-19

We continuously inform the project locations about the latest developments and regulations in the field of sport. The current statement of the Sport Union Schweiz of 04 february you can be found here.
 


Update Covid-19 of 16 February 2022

  •     For pre-school groups, there are no longer any restrictions in outdoor and indoor areas for all ages.
  •     Contact details do not need to be recorded either.
  •     This means that preschool activities in outdoor and indoor areas are once again possible without any restrictions.
  •     Local and cantonal regulations as well as hygiene measures must be observed.

    We ask for mutual respect if someone wants to continue wearing a mask.


Update Covid-19 from 04 February 2022
For the time being, the current measures according to the update of 20 December 2021 are valid for the area of pre-school sports. We will make an update as soon as there are changes in this regard.



Update Covid-19 of 20 December 2021 
At its meeting on 17 December 2021, the Federal Council decided that from next Monday 20 December, indoor non-professional sports will be subject to compulsory certification.
What this means concretely for the area of preschool gymnastics:

  • For preschool gymnastics groups that practice their sports activities indoors, a 2G (Vaccinated or Convalescent) with compulsory certification applies to all persons aged 16 and over. A valid Covid certificate must be presented and checked before the lesson. 
     
  • In addition to the certificate requirement, masks are compulsory in indoor pre-school classes. There is no mask requirement for the children.
     
  • There are no restrictions for preschool gymnastics groups that carry out their sporting activities in outdoor areas.
     
  • It is possible to conduct lessons under 2G+ (vaccinated or recovered and tested) without a mask requirement. 
     
  • Do the existing protection concepts have to be adapted to the new rules? YES, especially the compulsory certification and the compulsory wearing of masks. In addition, the local and cantonal requirements must be reviewed.

Update Covid-19 of 03 December 2021 
At its meeting on 03 December 2021, the Federal Council decided that as of next Monday 06 December, indoor non-professional sports will be subject to compulsory certification. What this means in concrete terms for the area of preschool gymnastics:

  • For preschool gymnastics groups that practice their sporting activities indoors, a certificate obligation applies. From Monday, 06.12.2021, a valid Covid certificate must be presented and checked for all persons aged 16 and over in preschool gymnastics lessons. 
     
  • In addition to the certificate requirement, masks will also be compulsory in indoor preschool gymnastics
     
  • There are no restrictions for preschool gymnastics groups that carry out their sporting activities in outdoor areas.
     
  • It is possible to conduct lessons under 2G (vaccinated or recovered) without a mask requirement. In addition to the hygiene measures (washing hands, disinfecting hands, etc.), we at network move together recommend that preschool gymnastics leaders and adults wear masks during preschool gymnastics. It is difficult to keep the minimum distances between the participants in preschool gymnastics. With this contribution of the compulsory wearing of masks, we reduce the risk of infection and make our contribution so that we can hopefully do gymnastics together without restrictions. At the moment, we all need solidarity for a successful cooperation. 

Do the existing protection concepts have to be adapted to the new rules? YES, especially the obligation to wear a certificate and a mask. In addition, the local and cantonal requirements must be reviewed.

Update Covid-19 of 09 September 2021
At its meeting on 08 September 2021, the Federal Council decided that Covid certification will be compulsory in various areas from next Monday 13 September. What this means in concrete terms for the area of preschool sports:

  • There are no restrictions for preschool gymnastics groups that practise their sporting activity outdoors.
     
  • Pre-school gymnastics groups with up to 30 persons (pre-school gymnastics leaders and children included) can carry out their lessons without the need for a certificate if: the activity takes place in a separate space (e.g. part of a triple gymnasium), the lessons take place weekly in a consistent group, an attendance list is kept, there is no mixing with other groups and there is effective ventilation.*
     
  • Pre-school gymnastics groups with more than 30 persons (pre-school gymnastics leaders and children included), e.g. VaKi gymnastics on Saturdays, which do not take place in permanent groups, must adapt the protection concept accordingly (including the obligation to obtain a certificate). We recommend that the maximum group size is set at 30 persons and that the corresponding requirements are followed.*
     
  • Do the existing protection concepts have to be adapted to the new rules? YES
     
  • *In addition to the hygiene measures (washing hands, disinfecting hands, etc.), the network Move Together recommend that preschool gymnastics leaders and adults in preschool gymnastics must wear masks. It is difficult to maintain the minimum distances between participants in pre-school gymnastics. With this contribution of the mask wearing obligation, we reduce the risk of infection and make our contribution so that we can hopefully do gymnastics together without restrictions.
