Corona measures

The corona pandemic is causing changes in our everyday lives. In the following, we list links to websites that facilitate orientation about the current status.


The University of Bern provides regular information on the current situation on campus and in the area of research and teaching. Students, lecturers, researchers and staff can find the news relevant to them on this page.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, entry conditions have been constantly changing. It is therefore advisable to inform yourself about the current situation on the website of the State Secretariat for Migration (SEM) and the Federal Office for Public Health (FPOH).

Rules for entering Switzerland

The Federal Office of Public Health provides information about the current corona situation in Switzerland as well as recommendations and ordinances for protective measures. There are sometimes cantonal differences in the implementation of protective measures, which can change continuously. However, face masks are obligatory in public transport throughout the country. 

For travellers from certain countries, there is also a quarantine obligation upon entry. The list of countries is updated regularly. Anyone under quarantine obligation and living in the Canton of Berne must register online with the authorities within 2 days.
