Swiss express support for maintaining Covid measures, despite protests
France24 says Swiss voters firmly backed the law behind the country’s Covid pass in a referendum Sunday, following a tense campaign marked by unprecedented levels of hostility.
The law provides the legal basis for the so-called Covid certificate to indicate that a person has been vaccinated or has recovered from the disease.
Opponents claimed the certificate, which has been required since September for access to restaurants and other indoor spaces and activities, is creating an “apartheid” system.
Final results showed 62 percent supported the law in a contest that saw voters surge to fill in their ballots.
