Maske wearing and vaccination certificate regulations in Zermatt and Cervinia
You need to wear a mask in all indoor public spaces, and it is recommended that you do so also in the main street and wherever it is crowded. Shops and services are open normally every day until 19:00 – 20:00. All restaurants are open normally but food and drink may only be consumed while seated and you need to wear a mask whenever you are on your feet inside. From age 16 upward you need to show your double vaccination (or healed status) pass / certificate, together with I.D. to be allowed entry inside (but not for outdoor terraces). A Covid pass only showing a recent negative test is no longer sufficient. On the Italian side this applies to kids from the age of 12 upwards, and you will need to show your certificate / pass and I.D. to use the lift system.
In Zermatt you are required to wear a mask on all enclosed mountain lifts and stations and wherever a minimum social distance of 1.5 metres cannot be kept. In Cervinia a mask is required on all lifts, the mask needs to be of the FFP2 kind for enclosed lifts. The mountain lifts are operating normally, with the number of passengers in the big capacity cable cars limited to 2/3 of maximum numbers.
In settings where it is not possible to eat or drink while seated, such as at bars and discos, admission will be limited to vaccinated or recovered persons who also present a negative test result (2G+). People who within the last four months have been fully vaccinated, received a booster or recovered from COVID-19 do not have to take a further test.
