It says if you are part of a group of people then one person from the group has to give contact details. It says nothing about a person sitting alone at a table having to give contact details!
Table for party of one. Group size one.

It’s only defining the rules for groups that’s why.

It’s one person per table who has to give their contact details according to the BAG rules so if you’re on your own it’s obvious that you need to do it.
I guess the coop didn’t think they needed to tell people that.

Dry ice is quite common and relatively easy to make. It is typically at -78.5°C. Logistics difficult but not impossible. In the third world more difficult but still not impossible.
Reminds me that some 60 years ago I had a job driving a truck selling icecream, every morning I had to add dry ice to the freezers before loading the icecream..

Anyway back to the topic; The US reports 3,100 coronavirus deaths in one day -- 20% more than the previous record. The spike in coronavirus deaths came on the same day the number of people hospitalized broke 100,000.

Now that the numbers go down, time to talk about a 3rd wave https://www.thelocal.ch/20201203/swi...ve-of-covid-19

"The circulation of the virus is still strong in Switzerland”, Isabella Eckerle, co-head of HUG’s Centre for Emerging Viral Diseases, told the newspaper. She added that “If we continue to relax the restrictions and people move around a lot at Christmas, there will be an upsurge in cases from mid-January, followed by the third wave in February”.

I don’t know about the rest of Romandie but they are reopening with severe restrictions here and pubs and bars are not opening before January.

From what I understood its suppose to be the same rules in all of Romandie.
The only new restriction is 4 (including children) at a table from max 2 households.

Adjusted by population size, the number of daily deaths in the US and in Switzerland is almost the same now. Theirs going up though, while ours come down (slowly).

Given that the number 1 vaccine producers in Europe will be the UK and then Switzerland, its really a crisis for everyone except in the UK if what you say is true.
Really not sure for vaccines in general but the known European production centres for the current 3 vaccines close to approval are Belgium, Italy and Switzerland.

Sadly the numbers are no longer going down - the curve has flattened since last week and today's number is pretty well the same as last Thursday.

As for the last few days the French speaking cantons are all moving along nicely, the German ones basically static or increasing.

Graubünden have just announced a 2 week restaurant closure from Friday.

We already had that one so nothing’s changed in that respect.
It is alcohol sales that have been clamped down on which is the biggest change for Neuchâtel.

Unfortunately I think bars and restaurants probably need closing until the elderly are vaccinated - which Switzerland appears to be slow on unfortunately.

In December and January? If you allowed only that I doubt the bars and restaurants could function anyway - but if they could sure, why not.

Obviously takeaway should be allowed.

I hadn’t seen that one. We didn’t have that one here, just live music and dancing etc was on the forbidden list.
It appears they’re now allowing it but restricting the maximum volume.

Well that will be an improvement from 2 weeks, in the meantime spare a thought for visitors to the UK from outside
safe travel corridor countries.

Went for a walk in the afternoon and stopped by the local bakery/cafe to buy some bread. The place was absolutely packed at 4pm with guests in their 60s and 70s enjoying their Cafe Creme and cake. At least they were not yodeling.

I have a feeling I'm about right on COVID as I get groaned by both wings!

Got groaned about a month ago for suggesting no need to lock down whilst R is below 1 and cases falling, and now getting groaned for suggesting restrictions now a return to R > 1 looks on the cards!
