The World Cup races in St. Moritz shake tremendously. The reason for this is the new requirements of the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (BAG), which stipulate a ten-day quarantine for travelers from Canada. Before the planned Super G double in Switzerland, the women will contest three speed races in Lake Louise on December 3rd to 5th.
It is true that efforts are being made to create a special regulation for athletes, as they are in a “bubble”. The Swiss Federal Office of Public Health emphasizes, however, that we have to take a closer look at the topic. Canada currently has comparatively few corona diseases with 2500 cases a day and around 38 million inhabitants. However, due to the new Omikron variant, the country is now on the risk list of the Federal Office.
