I just saw an article about it in The Local a bit ago. I'll paste the text here in case it interests anyone who doesn't subscribe to The Local. At least the weather is supposed to start cooling off a bit, beginning Saturday (highs in the low to mid-20s).

Basel introduces compulsory mask requirement in shops from Monday
https://www.thelocal.ch/20200820/bas...ement-in-shops

Basel City has become the first German-speaking canton to introduce a compulsory mask requirement in shops and supermarkets.

Basel City on Thursday joined four French-speaking cantons - Geneva, Vaud, Jura and Neuchâtel - in requiring shoppers to wear masks.

In addition to shops and supermarkets, Basel City will also require masks on the grounds of secondary schools (including grammar schools, FMS and vocational schools).

On school grounds, masks will be required wherever distance cannot be kept - i.e. not in classrooms.

Swiss tabloid Blick reports that the requirement will be implemented from Monday, August 24th.

Neuchâtel introduces compulsory mask requirement

On Wednesday evening, Neuchâtel put in place a mask requirement for shops.

The rule comes into effect immediately and will remain in place until at least September 30th.

Neuchâtel joins Geneva, Vaud and Jura in requiring masks in shops and supermarkets.

On a federal level, masks have been required in public transport all across Switzerland since July 6th.
Typically accurate reporting by they Local I see.
The mask rule comes into effect tomorrow in Neuchâtel, it didn’t come into effect immediately.
