As curves are flattening, countries around Europe are moving towards ending restrictions step by step. Federal Council announced a three-step plan to gradually lift the restrictions put into place on March 16th.
As of April 27th, when the de-confinement will begin, hairdressers, massage therapists, and beauty salons will be among the first to re-open, along with garden centres, hardware stores, and florists. Non-emergency medical procedures, which had been restricted since mid-March, will also be authorised from that date on.
Two weeks later, on May 11th , classes in obligatory schools will resume. All other shops will re-open as well.
Then, on June 8th, secondary and vocational schools, as well as universities, will start; entertainment and leisure facilities like museums, libraries, botanical gardens, and zoos are expected to re-open too.
