After some clubs had already gone ahead and implemented 2G for their arenas, the two leagues have now followed suit. This means that only people vaccinated against or recovered from Covid-19 will be allowed to attend games, but masks are not required to be worn any longer.
The new measures will kick in effective immediately, but two of today's games will still be under 3G rules - the SC Rapperswil-Jona Lakers versus the ZSC Lions as well as EHC Olten against EHC Winterthur.
With Covid-19 numbers on the rise again, the Federal Council had announced new regulations last Friday. The clubs of National and Swiss League decided to hold a meeting today to discuss the ways to implement said regulations.
