We arrived and were surprised by the lack off anti Covid measures. Compared to everywhere I have been I wasn’t expecting a ‘4 star’ in Switzerland to be the place I felt the least safe regarding Covid.
Sunday morning at the breakfast buffet when the canton of Valais had imposed masks as from that day in bars and restaurants, stipulating that unless sitting at the tables masks were obligatory, clients were strolling around without masks, sharing bread knives, serving spoons, lifting lids...etc. We ended up drinking our coffee served at the table by a masked waiter and left.
I realize that guests should be more responsible but surely it is in the interest of the hotel staff to firmly and clearly state that masks are mandatory on top of disinfecting hands, social distancing etc.
so as not to become the next hot spot and avoid further closing. We checked out with staff still not masked. Hopefully since the Conseil Federal’s announcement a few hours later these problems will be fixed.
On a more positive note the massages at the spa were lovely and the professional competent employees wore their masks when asked.
Not normally negative but think that preventive measures are the way to go to maintain tourism in lovely places.
