Some say it now makes no sense to force a traveller into quarantine when arriving back from many European countries as the Swiss rate is higher than many regions elsewhere.

The Federal Health Office says it’s aware of the discrepancy and is examining possible changes.

The federal government is planning an inter-cantonal meeting tomorrow to discuss further tactics.
