Booster Protection Concept – 11.05.20

Following the decision of the Federal Council from the 29.04.20, we are pleased to be able to welcome you back in our studios.

The Federal Council is calling on us to keep up our efforts to protect ourselves and others. We thus invite you to strictly follow the safety rules and measures that are described in our protection concept to allow you and all the members of the booster team to work and workout in the safest possible environment.

Our protection concept has been developed in accordance with the sanitary / epidemiological regulations of the FOPH, and the framework conditions developed by Swiss Olympic with regards to the Covid-19 situation.

As a reminder, below are the main transmission ways:

  • Through close and prolonged contact: If you’re less than two metres from someone who has contracted the illness.
  • Through droplets: If a person who is infected sneezes or coughs, the virus can be transported directly to the mucous membranes in the nose, mouth or eyes of other people.
  • Via your hands: Infectious droplets can get onto your hands from coughing and sneezing. Or if you come into contact with a surface contaminated with the virus. They can then get into your system if you touch your mouth, nose or eyes.


Here is the summary of general principles to prevent the spread of the coronavirus:

  1. Compliance with the FOPH’s hygiene regulations
  2. Social distancing (2m distance between all person, 10 m2 per person, no bodily contact).
  3. Gatherings of not more than five persons, in accordance with the requirements of the authorities. Establishment of a list of participants for the follow-up of potential chains of infection.
  4. Compliance with the specific FOPH regulations for the particularly vulnerable people.
