Covid restrictions

Due to the sanitary restrictions imposed by the Swiss Federal Council as well as the rules and recommendations of Swiss Athletics, ATLETICAGENEVE must adopt the following limitations:

  1. Athletes who are members of national squads or in possession of a 2021 Elite Athlete card (or equivalent) issued by their own federation (a verification link is asked when registering online)
  2. To enter the Swiss territory, athletes vaccinated or having done a rapid antigen test (available for free at Terminal 2 at the airport, without appointement, from 06:00 to 19:00) carried out within the last 24 hours or a valid PCR test at the latest 72 hours before the competition.  More details here.

  5. Number of participants according to the competitions
  6. Visitors : register to use your Personal Digital Access Card (CoGa app). This will be required to enter the stadium.
  7. On site application of the specific covid plan concept.
    1. To assist as spectator or participate as an athlete or member staff, it is not be required a covid test or vaccination.
      Nevertheless, a free quick test is available at Terminal 2 of the Airport for those who want.

We also draw attention to the fact that these rules may change and that the Swiss Federal Council and Swiss Athletics may modify the degree of limitation, either by making it more severe or, we hope, by making it more flexible.
Consequently, we may subsequently be required to modify these health safety instructions.
We also remind you that by regulation (athlete's instructions), each athlete who has booked a plane or train ticket must also take out flight/train cancellation insurance. ATLETICAGENEVE does not come into play if an athlete for some reason cannot / can no longer attend the event, including f the reason for the cancellation should come from ATLETICAGENEVE.
