Event cancellation fund

Here you will find information about the measures for public events of significance above the cantonal level.

On 19 March 2021, the federal parliament amended the COVID-19 Act, with changes that now include provisions for measures that apply to public events of significance above the cantonal level in Article 11a.

The federal government and the cantons have started work on implementing an event cancellation fund and are in contact with the industry associations in this regard. The lead agency of the federal government is the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO).
