The authorities announced a few days ago the isolation of three cantons, including two on the border with Germany.

These three townships are areas where the British variant of the coronavirus is actively circulating. The inhabitants of these regions are therefore no longer authorized to circulate. And this poses problems for many cross-border commuters who are used to going to neighboring Germany, to work for example.


The German government has also ordered the border to be closed with the region of Austrian Tyrol, a territory also strongly affected by the Covid-19 variant.

Germany, like many European countries, is limiting entry and exit into its territory in order to slow the progression of the epidemic.

The Chancellor recently announced that the restrictions would be in effect at least until March 7.


Conversely, Poland is losing weight.

For a few days, the ski resorts have been open, as have the swimming pools, museums, shopping centers and even theaters.
