Covid-19 - Congress Safety Concept - UPDATE
After careful consideration, the Congress Committee has decided to repeal the 2G+ Covid-19 Safety Concept for the SSP/SSTS – SSSSC Joint Annual Conference 2022.
Following the current rules of the Federal Office of Public Health, it is no longer a requirement to wear a face mask or to provide a valid Covid-Certificate.
Nevertheless, the committee strongly appeals to the personal responsibility of each participant and still recommends adherence to the 2G+ rule as well as the wearing of a face-mask during the conference, even if there will be no control of these measures.
Detailed information about the concept is available here.
