Anyone knwo a cross border worker who can bring a package from Germany?

I live in Baden and need to get a DHL package from Germany, and of course would normally use one of the many packet shops over the border, but now the border is closed.

Since only cross border workers get through, I am asking here if anyone is or can connect me to someone willing to receive a package and bring it to Baden / Zurich area, I would even drive to Basel. (important health supplements, I am afraid they would get stuck in customs extra long if sent to me here in CH now... even overnight delivery from Swiss e-shops take over a week now)

You are asking for a good samaritan to carry over the border a box of pills, presumably not life-support critical, for a stranger, in these times when they are only allowed to cross border for sensitive work, for something which you acknowledge you can get here in CH in a week. All to save few francs.

I think you and I are living on different planets.

Even if this does not help with your package, health supplements can be ordered directly into Switzerland through Iherb, Piping Rock and others.

Meet me at the shop on the corner at midnight.

Wear a red carnation, so I know it's you.

These are my conditions to hand over the package.
