So not just Ticino, but now the whole of Switzerland is in lock down due to the Corona crisis. It’s not as if we weren’t expecting it but it still came as a bit of a shock when the news was announced by Interior Minister Alain Berset that all schools, shops, bars, restaurants, gyms, theatres, cinemas, hairdressers etc in Switzerland will be closed from midnight on 16th March until 19th April 2020. Additionally train and bus services will be reduced across the whole of the country. Food shops & supermarkets, pharmacies, banks, hotels & the post office will remain open. We should be staying at home and what’s more, meetings of 5 people or more either inside or outside are now banned.
