FAQ Museums / Coronavirus

Is the UZH Covidpass valid for the UZH museums and collections?

Yes; the UZH Covidpass must be presented together with a valid ID/UZH Card.

If school classes with schoolchildren over the age of 16 visit UZH museums or collections, do they have to present Covid certificates?

Yes, all teachers and students over the age of 16 must show a valid Covid certificate with QR code (electronic or on paper) together with official photo ID. Exceptions are made for group visits by school classes outside of the public opening hours. Please enquire at the respective museums or collections for more information.

Are Covid certificates with no QR code or certificates from non-EU/EFTA countries accepted at UZH museums and collections?

In addition to the Swiss Covid certificate, other vaccination certificates from abroad will also be recognized if the vaccine used is approved in the EU or listed in the WHO’s Emergency Use Listing. This includes certificates issued for vaccinations with the Chinese Sinovac and Sinopharm, but not for the Russian vaccine Sputnik. 

Do masks have to be worn in public indoor areas of UZH museums and collections?

No; the certificate requirement means masks are no longer mandatory. However, we recommend that visitors still wear masks when visiting our exhibitions, on guided tours, at workshops or at indoor events.

What about data protection when showing the Covid certificate?

Your data is secure; no personal data is centrally stored.
