- Retroactive quarantine: All persons who have entered Switzerland from these two countries since 14 December must go into quarantine.
- Entry ban: The Federal Council has also introduced a general entry ban for all foreign nationals seeking to enter Switzerland from the UK and South Africa. This is intended in particular to stop travel from these countries for tourism purposes.

100 Years AGO
WINTER SPORTS IN SWITZERLAND
Alpine winters which begin with a heavy snowfall in October often redress the balance by rain at Christmas. This year a wonderful summer outstayed its welcome, and the autumn tints and cloudless skies did not console the anxious hotelkeepers for a complete lack of snow. All things come to an end, and punctually on December 1 heavy snowfall delighted the anxious watchers. Just enough snow fell to satisfy the ski-runners. ....

The following announcement has been posted on the Inferno Office website on Monday 7th December:
"What was becoming apparent in the past few weeks is unfortunately now a certainty. The necessary restrictions due to Covid-19 means that the Inferno ski races cannot be held from January 20-23, 2021.
We have examined a possible postponement of the races to the end of March / beginning of April 2021. Unfortunately, it cannot be assumed that the situation will have improved so that events of our size will be possible again. In addition, there is the problem that sections of the Inferno descent can be endangered by the wet snow avalanches that we have in spring. It is also questionable whether cross-country skiing would be at all possible due to the snow conditions. These are the reasons that have led us to decide against postponing the races but unfortunately means the Inferno Races 2021 have been cancelled...
...Start places drawn for 2021 will not be transferred to 2022.
The 78th Int. Inferno ski races will take place from January 19-22 in 2022. Online registration will be open from June 2021. We're already looking forward to seeing you again."
The Kandahar Ski Club will inform members about their refund process in due course. Further information will follow when it is available.
