Federal government to assume test costs, SwissCovid app to start on 25 June.
In order to be able to respond rapidly to a renewed increase in the number of cases, testing should be conducted as widely as is possible and appropriate. As of 25 June, the federal government will therefore be assuming the cost of all coronavirus tests. That was the decision taken by the Federal Council at its meeting on 24 June. It also adopted the Ordinance on the Proximity Tracing System for the Coronavirus. This will make it possible to for the SwissCovid app to be used across Switzerland from 25 June.
