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  13 january you can be found here.


Update Covid-19 Situation of 14 January 2021

The Network Together Gymnastics and the Sport Union Switzerland have taken note of the latest decisions of the Federal Council of 13 January. We will analyse them in detail and communicate the recommendations and measures next Wednesday, 20 January 2021. We thank you for your understanding.

  • We recommend that the preschool teaching sector cease operations by the end of February 2021. This is our contribution to the protection and containment of the Covid-19 pandemic, with the hope of resuming operations as soon as possible thereafter.
     
  • Alternative offers will also be communicated, which will be made available from our side.

We will be holding another Zoom Meeting next Wednesday (20.01.2021) from 15:00 to 15:45, where we will provide updates and answer questions. The access link to the meeting can be obtained via pascale@mitu-schweiz.ch.

Stay healthy!
 


Update Covid-19 situation as of 12 January 2021

Next Wednesday, the Federal Council will decide on the further Covid-19 regulations. We will be conducting an update on the regulations and their implications for sport, particularly preschool teaching, via Zoom on Thursday afternoon 14 January at 01.30 p.m. Attendance is voluntary and free of charge.

You can send us your questions in advance by e-mail to info@mitu-schweiz.ch
 



Update Covdi-19 situation as of 13 December 2020

With the new regulations announced by the Federal Council at a media conference on 11 December 2020 to combat the Covid-19 pandemic, from Saturday 12 December 2020 until 22 January 2021 sports activities are only permitted individually or in groups of up to a maximum of 5 people (including leaders). The following rule will therefore apply to pre-school sports with immediate effect:

Small children (i.e. MUKI/VAKI course participants) do not count as persons; they may be present in addition. An area of 15m2 must be available per adult-child pair. The adults must wear a mask at all times and keep a distance of 1.5m. In addition, the maximum group size is 5 adults (incl. leader).

More information and details at: https://www.baspo.admin.ch/de/aktuell/covid-19-sport.html


In principle, it is possible to continue the operation of the pre-school gymnastics programmes with the current measures with an updated protection concept.

IMPORTANT: Where the cantonal measures are stricter than the national measures, these must be observed.

  • We recommend that the preschool gymnastics programmes be suspended until 22 January and hope that we can resume gymnastics together as soon as possible.
     
  • We would like to draw your attention to our initiative "Gymnastics Together - at home" with many exercise tips for families. We will continue this initiative from 04 January - 22 January. Update to follow.
     
  • We offer preschool gymnastics leaders (independent of an implementation of the MiTu Miteinander Turnen project) the opportunity to ask questions, exchange ideas and receive support from us with our Zoom meetings. We will communicate the date and the web link for the next Zoom meeting here on Monday 14 December at 10.00 am. The MiTu project sites will also be informed via broadcast.


We wish you all a wonderful 3rd Sunday in Advent, stay healthy, keep moving - together we can do it!

Update Covid-19 situation of 06 November 2020
We are irritated by the adjustments that have been made over the past few days in terms of group size for pre-schooling. This caused additional irritation and anxiety among the pre-school leaders and the participating families. In exchange with the Federal Office of Sports, Swiss Olympic and the STV, we demanded clarity and cooperation. We would like to point out to the pre-school directors that they should contact the Covid-19 delegates of the Sport Union Switzerland (Nicolas Kamer, Covid-19 Delegate Sport Union Switzerland, 041 262 13 21) or the Swiss Gymnastics Federation STV directly in case of questions or uncertainties regarding the Covid-19 protective measures. This simplifies the process and reduces the additional workload for the responsible authorities. Many thanks for your understanding.

As of 6 November, the following rules apply to pre-school gymnastics according to the Federal Office of Sport FOSPO:

Small children (i.e. MUKI/VAKI course participants) do not count as persons; they may also be present. An area of 15m2 must be available per adult/child pair. Adults must wear a mask at all times and keep a distance of 1.5m. In addition, the maximum group size of 15 adults (including the leader) applies.

More information and details at www.baspo.admin.ch/de/aktuell/covid-19-sport.html

  • We recommend that this regulation of 6 November be coordinated with the protection concept of the association, the municipality and the canton.
     
  • On 29 October we deliberately decided to reduce the size of the group to a maximum of 15 people (1 leader, 7 adults including one child each) in order to contribute to the protection and containment of the Covid-19 pandemic. We are sticking to this position and recommendation with the new regulation as of 06 November. Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, we consider it sensible to carry out pre-schooling in small groups (max. 15 persons including children). We hope that we will all soon be able to do gymnastics together again in our usual form.
     
  • All our recommendations and instructions of 29 October are still valid.
     


Update Covid-19 situation of 29 October 2020
At its meeting on 28 October 2020, the Federal Council took further measures valid throughout Switzerland to contain the coronavirus. In addition, depending on the situation, stricter regulations may apply at cantonal level, further restricting everyday life. In view of the current situation, the following instructions or recommendations apply to our project sites or the pre-school area:
 

  • All adults in the groups must wear masks. We are basically of the opinion that sports activities should be maintained (and not cancelled due to the mask recommendation).
     
  • According to our assessment, a maximum group size of 15 people (including children and leaders) must be observed. One leader, 7 adults with one child each. If the MuKi, VaKi, GroKi or ElKi group is larger, we recommend from now on until further notice to divide the group and introduce a two-week rhythm per group (max. 15 persons) or, if possible, to divide the group into two fixed groups and distribute them in two separate halls with separate cloakrooms. We take this position because of the current situation and our values with the focus on togetherness.*
     
  • We recommend that families be made aware of our movement recommendations "Move Together - at home".
     
  • We recommend that the participating families be advised that they should change their clothes at home.
     
  • We recommend that the participating families are advised to stay at home if symptoms occur according to BAG guidelines and to inform particularly vulnerable persons (e.g. pregnant women, grandparents).
     
  • We recommend that, if possible, pre-school lessons are held in nature (parks, woods or green areas) and that contact be made with the relevant facility operators or property owners.
     

* The project location Turnwerkstatt Zentralschweiz with the offer toddler park is an event and therefore has a maximum limit of 50 persons. More information on this link.

Update Covid-19 situation of 21 October 2020
At an extraordinary meeting on 18 October 2020, the Federal Council adopted several measures applicable throughout Switzerland to combat the sharp rise in coronavirus infections. Based on the current development and the comments of the Federal Office of Sport (FOSPO), Swiss Olympic and the Sport Union Switzerland, we have decided to make the following recommendations for our project sites and the area of pre-schooling:

  • We recommend to review the protection concept in consultation with the operators of the facilities and your club and to adapt it if necessary.
     
  • We recommend that all adults in the pre-school area wear a protective mask. We generally believe that sports activities should be maintained (and not cancelled due to the mask recommendation).
     
  • We recommend that participating families are advised that they should change their clothes at home.
     
  • We recommend that participants are advised to stay at home in case of symptoms according to BAG guidelines and that they inform particularly vulnerable persons (e.g. pregnant women, grandparents).
     
  • We recommend that, if possible, pre-school lessons are held in nature (parks, woods or green areas) and that contact be made with the relevant facility operators or property owners.
