Switzerland. Canton Ticino. Vezia. The restaurant is closed due to the Coronavirus (also called Covid-19). On a terrace, a board menu. Chairs, tables and candles with hearts and stars. On the central pillar, a heart made with wood is used as decoration. Due to the spread of the coronavirus, the Federal Council has categorised the situation in the country as “extraordinary”. It has issued a recommendation to all citizens to stay at home, especially the sick and the elderly. The Federal Council (German: Bundesrat, French: Conseil fédéral, Italian: Consiglio federale, Romansh: Cussegl federal) is the seven-member executive council that constitutes the federal government of the Swiss Confederation. From March 16 the government ramped up its response to the widening pandemic, ordering the closure of bars, restaurants, sports facilities and cultural spaces. Only businesses providing essential goods to the population – such as grocery stores, bakeries and pharmacies – are to remain open. Vezia is a municipality in the district of Lugano. 27.03.2020 © 2020 Didier Ruef
