COVID-19 SYMPTOMS

GENERAL MEASURES

Wearing a mask or face covering over the nose and mouth is mandatory in buildings and chalets that are enclosed and/or partially covered. This applies to all individuals 10+ years of age. In addition, covering the face should be practised in any situation where the recommended 2 metres distancing is compromised. More details here.

While waiting in line and riding the lifts, wearing a face covering over the nose and mouth is mandatory at all times for persons 3+ years of age.

Face coverings include: neck warmers, mufflers, balaclavas, or other tight-fitting clothing covering the nose and mouth. The garment should be made of at least 2 layers of close-knit fabric and be large enough to completely cover the nose and mouth.

We also invite everyone to adopt good hygiene practices, in particular by washing their hands regularly.
