Swiss Rockets provided free face masks to the citizens in Zurich, Bern & Basel
Following a resurgence in COVID-19 cases in a country, the Swiss government declared that face masks are obligatory on public transport starting on Monday, July 6th. Persons over the age of 12 will have to wear a mask in trains, trams and buses, as well as on mountain rail and cableways and on lake and river boats.The decision is a response to the rising number of coronavirus infections and demands from cantons.
In order to support a fight against coronavirus pandemic and to make a contribution to public health, Swiss Rockets organized a giveaway and provided Swiss citizens with free face masks.
Our teams met people at the main train stations in Bern, Zurich, and Basel on Friday and Monday, providing them with free 3-layer face protection masks.
Some of them were surprised by this measure of the Swiss government and didn't have a chance to purchase protective masks. Hopefully, we will all adjust to these measures quickly, in order to prevent a second wave and to control the spreading of a coronavirus.
Following the lifting of measures to combat the coronavirus pandemic, more people are using public transport. Unfortunately, in many cases the recommended distance cannot be maintained. Face masks are the best possible solution for protection, especially if it’s not possible to maintain the distance. The Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) recommends that each member of the public have a personal supply of 50 masks.
If you didn't have a chance to meet us at the train stations and to get masks, you can order your package on our Swiss Rockets webshop.
