Nira Alpina Health & Safety Measures

For your protection and wellbeing

The health of our guests and employees is the number one priority for us, which is why, in line with our protection concept, we have implemented relevant measures in accordance with the specifications issued by the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) and with the support of HotellerieSuisse.

General

Since February 2022, the following protective measures has been lifted throughout Switzerland:
- mask requirement in hotels, spa, restaurants, shops, as well as in other public settings (facilities, venues and events)
- access restrictions regulated by COVID certificate (3G, 2G and 2G+-rule) to facilities and venues such as cinemas, theatres and restaurants, as well as events.

Please take note of the following recommendations and the information on display.

  • Adhere to the distancing requirement of 1.5 meters between yourself and other guests, groups of guests and employees. This also applies to toilets, changing rooms, showers and relaxation areas.
  • Try not to use the lift with other groups of guests; if you do, observe the relevant distance.
  • Wash/disinfect your hands regularly. Try to avoid touching any foreign objects as much as possible or disinfect your hands afterwards if you do. Disinfectants are available at various points in the hotel.
  • Have your food and drink charged to your room or pay by card (contactless if possible).
  • Whilst there are no specifications regarding protective masks, you are welcome to use your own at all times.
  • If you are not observing the rules, as defined in this protection concept, we refer to our house rights.
