Requirement to wear masks

The wearing of masks is compulsory in public transport vehicles throughout Switzerland (exception: open panoramic cars). A mask must also be worn in enclosed areas of railway stations and in shops. In addition to travel centres and waiting rooms, shopping areas in basements are also considered to be indoor areas. This also applies to persons who have already been fully vaccinated. Persons who cannot wear masks for special reasons - especially medical reasons - and children up to the age of 12 are exempt from the obligation to wear masks. No mask is required on platforms of railway stations, stops as well as chairlifts and ship decks.

Eating and drinking is still allowed on public transport - during this time the mask can be removed. In order to protect fellow travellers and themselves, customers are responsible for ensuring that they are equipped with masks when travelling by public transport.

Covid certificate obligation

There is currently no Covid certificate obligation for travel by public transport. For individual products (Albula dining cars, special culinary journeys, Glacier Express), the 2G rule will apply as of Monday, 20 December 2021 in accordance with the guidelines for catering establishments. According to this rule, only persons who have been vaccinated or have recovered will have access to the dining cars. In addition, seating is compulsory during consumption.

Entering Switzerland

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic there are special rules for people entering Switzerland: Entering Switzerland

Entering Italy

New regulations will apply for entry into Italy, including public transport, from 16 December 2021. These are likely to apply until 31 January 2022. Anyone wishing to enter Italy must be able to produce a negative PCR or antigen test. This also applies to people who have been vaccinated against or have recovered from COVID-19. Anyone who has not been vaccinated against COVID-19 and also has not recovered from the disease must remain in quarantine for five days in addition to the negative COVID test. A quarantine period of 10 days is mandatory for anyone entering Italy from outside the EU/EFTA.

Only those who live in the border area and no more than 60 km from their destination in Italy are excluded from these guidelines. This means that anyone permanently resident in the Engadin or closer to the border can therefore travel to Tirano with a valid Basic Green Pass without observing these rules.

In addition, the Digital Passenger Locator Form (dPLF) must be carried with you on arrival.

The general obligation to wear a mask in enclosed spaces and on public transport still applies. The Bernina Express will stop in Campocologno for embarkation and disembarkation until further notice. This allows visitors to admire the Brusio Circular Viaduct – one of the highlights of the network – without leaving Switzerland.

The applicable provisions may change at any time. We therefore recommend that you use this link to find out more about the regulations shortly before your trip: www.salute.gov.it

Hygiene and safety

The protection of passengers and employees continues to be the top priority. The cleaning of the trains has been intensified. Several times a day, contact surfaces and surfaces such as handrails, buttons, tables, armrests and toilets are cleaned and disinfected. Cleaning is also carried out more frequently at the stations. Passengers also have the opportunity to wash their hands in the open WC facilities at the stations in accordance with the regulations. Disinfectant dispensers have been installed at staffed stations.In accordance with the FOPH guidelines, a hygiene mask must be worn for public transport from the age of 12. Passengers are responsible for having and wearing a protective mask. Passengers buy tickets online, in apps or from vending machines and pay contactlessly at ticket counters. The protection concept of public transport is based on the personal responsibility and solidarity of the travellers. If they adhere to the measures described above, they can travel safely on Swiss public transport.
