Visiting rules for inpatients
From Wednesday, 24 June 2020, the following relaxed regulations will apply.

- maximum of 2 visitors per patient at the same time in the patient room
Individual regulations apply for visits/accompanying persons in the intensive care unit and emergency centre

Training Center Benefit
Unfortunately, due to the limited space available, the protective measures (social distancing) prescribed by the FOPH cannot be fulfilled at present. The Benefit training centre will therefore remain closed until further notice due to the coronavirus. Subscribers will be informed as soon as training is possible again. The subscription period will be extended accordingly.
Consultations, interventions and therapies
In accordance with the Federal Council decision of 16 April 2020, all consultations, interventions and therapies can be carried out again from 27 April 2020. Since then, the full range of medical services is available again.
