Status 17.02.2022

As 17th of February 2022, the Federal Council has lifted practically all Corona measures. Until the end of March 2022, the following measures will remain in force: 5 days of isolation for people tested positive, as well as the obligation to wear a mask in public transport and in health facilities. You can find the current federal measures here.

However, there are still recommendations, which we also adhere to. As soon as they are updated, we will link to them here.

WOKO regularly follows the latest developments and implements measures to protect staff and prevent the spread among tenants. WOKO cannot answer questions on the subject of coronavirus by mail or telephone. We regularly publish special information and regulations for WOKO here and through other channels.
