Re: 200 Brits Escape from Verbier

yes- but perhaps a bit more detailed? Thanks.
Copied from 20 Minuten into Deepl:

About 400 English tourists should have spent their vacations in Verbier in quarantine.The federal government had ordered appropriate measures on Monday because of the virus mutation. Now about half of the British have secretly left the village.

On Monday, the Confederation has imposed a retroactive quarantine for entrants from England because of the mutation of the coronavirus. This had consequences especially for the ski resort Verbier in the Valais. As reported by the "SonntagsZeitung" (paid article), of the 400 affected English tourists known to the municipality, half left the village in a night and fog action - before the quarantine period expired.

"Many of them stayed in quarantine for a day before leaving unnoticed under cover of darkness," said Jean-Marc Sandoz, communications officer for the Valais commune of Bagnes, which includes Verbier. The hoteliers first noticed the clandestine departure because their calls to the quarantine rooms repeatedly went unanswered or the meals deposited outside the rooms had not been touched.

Where the tourists disappeared to is unclear - there were no flights between Switzerland and the UK at the time. "This was the worst week our community has ever experienced," Sandoz said. The community felt abandoned by the federal government and the canton - and in an "unprecedented situation."
