Public reminded to social distance over long weekend
Those looking to take a break over the upcoming long weekend are being reminded social distancing rules remain in place and some areas may be closed.
Last weekend was Ascension – and thousands headed to the lakes and mountains. Local mayors say some even broke into closed off areas and had barbeques.
In Zurich and Lucerne last weekend police had to close some lakeside walks due to the high number of people. But the closures are temporary and they will be open this weekend, say the police.
In the city of Lucerne, authorities say as many public spaces as possible will be open to allow crowds as much space as possible.
