You must now have a Covid certificate to visit a Valais hospital. Monday evening in Sion, some sixty people demonstrated against this decision.
Due to the evolution of the pandemic, the Valais Hospital no longer allows access to visitors and external stakeholders who do not have a Covid certificate. The measure in force since Monday 1 p.m. will also be applied from this Wednesday in Neuchâtel hospitals. Parents wishing to go to pediatrics or another hospital department with a child over 12 years old are therefore subject to this rule. A situation that is not unanimous.
Following a video posted on social networks by a Martigneraine explaining this new reality, about sixty people gathered, in solidarity, Monday evening, in front of the Sion Hospital, as reported “Le Nouvelliste”. The demonstration took place peacefully. A small group still wanted to enter the hospital for a moment, before being ordered by the mother to leave the premises. Which they immediately did. The mother, who therefore does not have a Covid certificate, was able to visit her son again on Monday afternoon. La Valaisanne claims that no one will prevent her from doing the same this morning.
