The cantons are supposed to check companies are following the rules, such as social distancing, mask wearing and sanitizer use.

Figures from last month show only 4 cantons carried out more than 100 checks – and some didn’t even report back to Bern.

The most active was Bern, which checked 556 companies, and Zurich with 472 checks.
