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 08 september you can be found here.
 


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.

Update Covid-19 of 02 September 2021

At its meeting of 01 September 2021, the Federal Council did not take any new measures compared to the last amendment of 08 september 2021. The following regulations will therefore continue to apply to the area of preschool teaching:

  • The capacity limitation indoors and outdoors, i.e. there is no maximum group size for the pre-school groups (ElKi, MuKi, GroKi, VaKi).
     
  • The obligation to wear a mask in preschool gymnastics will continue to be waived. Masks are still compulsory in rooms where sporting activities are not carried out (cloakrooms, entrance areas, etc.).
     
  • In order to be able to track close contacts of infected persons, attendance lists must be kept for indoor preschool gymnastics activities.
     
  • The implementation of preschool gymnastics programmes must continue to be coordinated with the local environment, but also with communal, school and, if necessary, cantonal authorities.
     
  • Do the existing protection concepts have to be adapted to the new rules? YES (according to FOSPO of 26 June 2021)
     

Update Covid-19 of 26 June 2021 

At its meeting on 23 June 2021, the Federal Council decided on a further opening step. Extensive relaxations of the measures will come into force. The following regulations will apply to preschool teaching from 26 June:

  • The limitation of indoor and outdoor capacity will be lifted, i.e. there will no longer be a maximum group size for preschool gymnastic groups.
     
  • The obligation to wear a mask in preschool gymnastics will be abolished. Masks will continue to be compulsory in rooms where sporting activities are not carried out (cloakrooms, entrance areas, etc.).
     
  • In order to be able to track close contacts of infected persons, attendance lists must continue to be kept for indoor preschool gymnastics activities.
     
  • The implementation of preschool gymnastics programmes must continue to be coordinated with the local environment, but also with communal, school and, if necessary, cantonal authorities.
     
  • Do the existing protection concepts have to be adapted to the new rules? YES (according to FOSPO of 27 May 2021).

Update Covie-19 of 28 Mai
At its meeting on 26 May 2021, the Federal Council decided on a further opening step, which will also apply to sport from 31 May. The following regulations will apply to preschool sports from 31 May:

  • The group size for preschool gymnastics groups (ElKi, MuKi, GroKi, VaKi) is limited to a maximum of 50 persons (incl. children and preschool gymnastics instructors) in the outdoor and indoor areas.
     
  • In the outdoor area, either a mask must be worn or the required distance of 1.5 metres must be maintained.
     
  • Indoors, a mask must be worn and the distance (1.5m) must be kept. A mask can only be dispensed with indoors if this is necessary for exercise and increased distance requirements are implemented. This is not the case for preschool gymnastics.
     
  • Do the existing protection concepts have to be adapted to the new rules? YES (according to FOSPO of 27 May 2021).
     
  • The cantons have the right to tighten the federal measures. We recommend consulting the pages of the cantons and being in regular contact with the municipalities or operators of the gymnasiums and sports facilities.
